How? No, the question you need to ask is why!
At Core Naturopathics, our clients come to understand that we are always looking upstream for what’s causing the downstream biochemical changes that manifest as the signs and symptoms of their disease.
Once you understand that the pain and discomfort of the symptoms you walk into the clinic with are not the cause of your problem but the result, you’re on the path to a true resolution. The resolution that will not only help you feel better in the short term but the cure that a return to self regulation and homeostasis provides.
Asking the right question to get the right answer
By asking the question, “What’s the best remedy for heart disease?” or “What’s the best protocol for cancer?” or “What’s the best herb for hot flushes?” you’re not asking the right question and therefore unlikely to receive a satisfactory answer.
We encourage you to change your way of looking at health and disease beyond the matching of a symptom with a drug, herb or nutrient. It all starts by asking a different question.
And that question is… What is the underlying cause of my disease?
Instead of: Will a ketogenic diet help me lose weight, assist my sugar problems and get me to sleep?
Rather you should be asking: What’s going on in the body that’s leaving me overweight, pre-diabetic and causing me to toss and turn throughout the night?
What set of circumstances have come together to overwhelm the body’s capacity to maintain balance and self regulation?
Is your system flooded with adrenaline because you were just laid off from work and worried about providing for the family?
Are your blood sugar swings related to the extra chocolate you are eating or other more significant cellular dysfunction?
Are you having trouble processing fat because of your gallbladder removal 10 years ago?
Our role at Core Naturopathics is to guide you out of suffering and back to living a full life but only if you start asking different questions. Questions that honour your bio-individuality and recognize the truth that root cause resolution is different for everybody.
Answering the right question
If we know the question we need to be asking—“What is the underlying cause?” we then need to be able to answer it.
And if ‘googling’ a symptom or diagnosis with the hopes of finding a miracle remedy is not working for you, what should be your course of action?
The answer lies in the body
Our solution to finding the root cause of your issues is to understand two critical things: what should be going on in your body vs. what is actually going on in the body?
Both of these require a deep understanding of functional biochemistry and an assessment of how far from homeostasis (and therefore health) you are. If you don’t measure you simply do not know!
The biochemical screening that we undertake as part of your consultation (we assess markers in blood, saliva, urine and bio-feedback parameters) allow us to see the discrepancy between what should be happening and what is actually happening in your body.
With this understanding, we are better able to target our recommendations to your unique needs. This approach also has the added advantage of saving you time, money and effort along the way.
