Naturopathic medicine is a distinct method of primary health care - an art, science, philosophy and practice of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of illness. Naturopathic physicians seek to restore and maintain optimum health in their patients by emphasizing nature's inherent self-healing process.
Dr. silvana's medical philosophy
Dr. Silvana believes in taking an individualized approach to medicine and takes into consideration the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, genetic, environmental and social factors affecting the patient’s health. She acknowledges that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and supports that by helping remove any obstacles to cure.
Through her work as a doctor, Dr. Silvana seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness, rather than simply eliminate or suppress symptoms. She uses methods that minimize risk of harmful side effects, and uses the least force necessary to treat.
Along with addressing conditions, Dr. Silvana also emphasizes prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility, and by taking appropriate steps to prevent illness.
Dr. Silvana believes in patients participating in their own healing process. To this end, she spends time with her patients helping them better understand their health and how they can support it.
