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 doctors use a combination of homeopathy, diet and lifestyle, and nutritional supplementation to provide you with an individualized treatment plan specific to your unique needs.
What kinds of health problems do you treat?
Resilience Naturopathic doctors treat a wide range of mental, behavioral, and neurological health challenges.
Do you still prescribe medications for your treatments?
If our doctors deem that pharmaceutical medications are the best tool to help you maintain mood stability they will be recommended. The goal of every Resilience Naturopathic doctor is to reduce or remove your need for pharmaceuticals, however your safety is paramount so the process of removing pharmaceuticals from your treatment plan may be very measured and methodical.
Do you provide talk therapy in addition to medical treatment?
We do not provide talk therapy directly in the Resilience Naturopathic treatment method. However we maintain a very robust network of therapists that we work closely with and frequently refer to.
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. If you are a California resident we can provide a superbill documentation of your visit that you can use to request out of network reimbursement from your insurance company.
How do you collaborate with my other medical service providers that are not in the naturopathic field?
Our Resilience Naturopathic doctors strive to provide the best collaborative care with your team of doctors. We communicate the types of treatments being recommended, educate them on how they work and impacts on the treatments they are using. We also coordinate care for reductions being made in medications.
Are there certain patients you do not accept in your practice?
We do not treat patients who do not have mental, behavioral, or neurological health challenges. Please refer to our health resources page to see other practitioners we work closely with and recommend.
How do I initiate a consult with you?
There are two ways to initiate a consult. The first is to call our office at 858-461-8121. The second is fill out our contact form and a member of our team will reach out to you within 1 business day.
How long does it take to feel the results of your method?
One of the best things about homeopathy is that results may occur almost immediately, but most people feel improvements within a few days to a few weeks.
However everyone is different and naturopathic medicine is a process. As we work to help our patients heal we tend to see both profound and incremental change. During your initial consult our doctors will spend ample time working with you to develop expectations for your individualized treatment plan.
