Resilience Naturopathic FAQ

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is utilizing the healing power of nature and naturally derived supplements to influence your body to heal.

What treatments do naturopathic doctors use?

Our Resilience Naturopathic providers primarily use homeopathy.  Diet, lifestyle, and nutritional supplementation recomendations are infrequently made should your unique needs dictate they would be of use.

My kid hasn’t been diagnosed yet. Can you give me a diagnosis?

Even though all of our providers are licensed naturopathic doctors who are trained to diagnose and treat any medical condition, the nature of virtual consultation is such that we cannot legally provide a diagnosis. If you require a diagnosis for any purpose you will need to see a local provider. 

Am I able to work with one of your providers locally?

No. All of our providers work from home in order to keep your costs down. 

Do you work with people who have conditions other than PANS or PANDAS?

We will work with immediate family members of children we see for PANS/PANDAS if there are “soft signs” in a sibling, or possible history in a parent. We will also work with parents for the trauma they have experienced as a result of PANS, because that is often the final key in healing for the child. For all other conditions we will refer out to another provider that we trust. 

Do you work with other complex childhood illnesses like ASD or MCAS?

We absolutely work with these cases when they are present in conjunction with   PANS or PANDAS. 

Can you work with my child if he/she is on medications or IVIG?

Yes. In fact, we ask that you not make any changes to medications or supplements until we have started homeopathy AND see improvements. Once improvements are occurring you can discuss the appropriate time to make changes with your provider. Your provider will give you education so that you can discuss any changes with the doctor who has prescribed the medications or supplements. 

Can you write prescriptions for my child?

Due to the nature of working virtually we are unable to write prescriptions for your child. You must maintain a relationship with a local doctor for all medical care. 

What’s the difference between a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine and a Doctor of Natural Medicine?

A Doctor of Natural Medicine (DNM) is not regulated and licensed in the United States or Canada. Unfortunately, in California anyone, regardless of training and education, can call themselves a naturopath. There is no independent regulatory body that ensures that these individuals have appropriate training, or that standards of practice are being maintained. You can be sure you are seeing a highly trained medical professional when they have ND after their name and went to a school accredited by the Council of Naturopathic Medical Education (CNME).

How are Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) trained?

Naturopathic doctors take a minimum of four years pre-medical studies with a bachelor’s degree requirement, followed by four or more years at one of seven recognized colleges of naturopathic medicine. The Association of Accredited Naturopathic Medical Colleges (AANMC) was established in February 2001 to propel and foster the naturopathic medical profession by actively supporting the academic efforts of accredited and recognized schools of naturopathic medicine. AANMC offers seven accredited naturopathic medical programs and eight campus locations in North America.

Do you take health insurance?

We do not take health insurance, and are unable to provide superbills with a diagnosis code. We can provide an invoice, but this may or may not be sufficient to obtain reimbursement, depending on your insurance carrier.

How do you collaborate with my other medical service providers that are not in the naturopathic field?

Our Resilience Naturopathic providers strive to provide the best collaborative care with your team of doctors. We communicate about the remedies being recommended, educate them on how they work and impacts on the treatments they are using. We can also coordinate care for reductions being made in medications and help educate providers about PANS/PANDAS when needed. 

Do you have to take homeopathic remedies forever?

No. Homeopathy is a healing therapy, so in time regular use will not be necessary. Most people work with us for at least 18-24 months. Many people decide to continue to work with us for general health purposes because of how effective homeopathy is. 

How long does it take to feel the results of your method?

With the right remedy most people start to feel better within a few days to a few weeks. There are over 3,000 homeopathic remedies to select from, so even with the significant expertise of our providers, sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right fit.
