My motivation for writing this letter is to inform the citizens of Franklin of Naturopathic Medicine and how this traditional practice of medicine can benefit their lives and save money on health care costs. First, the difference between a naturopathic physician and a medical physician lies in the application of knowledge. The naturopathic doctor adheres to seven principles including identify and treat the cause. The naturopathic doctor is trained in modern medicine as well, but they take it one step further and try to identify the cause of an illness. After identifying the cause, they will recommend the least invasive remedy first. This is very different from today’s medical approach. Today’s medical doctor treats from a symptom standpoint and suppresses the symptom. In this way, our present healthcare system is backwards.
