Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is medical care focused on your general bodywide health and wellness. Your primary care provider is the one who handles the majority of your medical needs, including sudden illnesses and chronic diseases alike. 

The naturopathic medicine team at Live Well Wellness Center takes an integrative approach, combining established healing methods with cutting-edge scientific advances and new research. The ultimate goal is true healing from within, rather than temporarily medicating a problem for symptom relief.

If you should need a specialist's care, your primary care providers at Live Well Wellness Center refer you to a highly trusted colleague with extensive condition-specific expertise.

Which acute conditions do primary care doctors treat?

The primary care doctors at Live Well Wellness Center treat many acute conditions, including:

  • Colds
  • Flu
  • Sore throat
  • Sinus infections
  • Ear infections
  • Bronchitis
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Fever

If necessary, the team can prescribe antibiotics or other medications. But, as naturopathic doctors, they try to use a more natural approach whenever possible. 

The naturopathic approach includes using methods like nutrient therapy, botanical medicine, and acupuncture to boost immune system function and help you fight infections from within. 

By building a healthier body through naturopathic medicine, you can also fight off acute illness better, which ultimately means you’ll experience colds and other illnesses less frequently and less intensely.

Which chronic conditions does primary care manage?

Live Well Wellness Center treats a wide spectrum of chronic diseases, disorders, and conditions, including:

Autoimmune disease

Autoimmune diseases the team frequently treats include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease.

Hormone imbalance

Hormone imbalance can play a role in many thyroid and adrenal conditions, as well as menopause, andropause (male menopause), infertility, and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). 

Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders 

A few of the GI disorders the team treats include small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), systemic candida, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and intestinal parasites.

Chronic infections

Chronic infections the team commonly treats include Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr virus, herpes zoster, and mold-related infections.

Sexual dysfunction

Common sexual dysfunction issues that respond well to naturopathic medicine include erectile dysfunction, Peyronie's disease, and low libido in both sexes.

The primary care team can also manage chronic pain, and they offer supplemental cancer treatments and all types of preventive care as well. 

Naturopathic medicine always considers the body, mind, and spirit to determine exactly how and why symptoms connect. In this way, the experienced team often finds answers that other providers cannot.
