How does Natural medicine differ from Conventional medicine?


Natural treatment is directed at the root cause of the problem thereby curing the disease, where as conventional medicine removes the symptoms temporarily. Naturopathic treatment is individual (tailor made) based, where as conventional medicine is disease based. Homeopathy is gentle and has no side effects. Homeopathy is also safe for use in pregnant women and infants.




Does Homeopathy really work or is it just a placebo effect?


Homeopathy is based on the principle of nano medicine. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3570304/?report=reader https://www.researchgate.net/publication/267767309_Homeopathy_emerging_as_nanomedicine Homeopathy is used by millions of people because it works and is safe. Homeopathy is used in treating infants and even animals. A placebo effect is based on the psycology of an individual. If the person thinks he is taking a medicine, he feels better psycologically even with placebo. But for a medicine to cure infants and animals, unless it has the curative effects it will not work.

If you can't afford the cost of treatment because of your financial situation, we would be happy to work with you as your health is important regardless of your situation.




Do you accept insurance?


We are not a covered provider on any insurance plan, so we do not offer any insurance billing. There are many reasons for this, but the main one is because our health-care intentions and philosophies are not at all aligned with the intentions and disease-care philosophies of the current insurance world in the US. We are focused on health, vitality, self healing, prevention, and personal responsibility. We do not feel comfortable allowing a system that does not share these same values to be in control of our patients’ choices and decisions when it comes to their personal health. We will, however, provide a receipt with ICD-10 codes and CPT codes for each patient visit if you want to submit a claim yourself.
Here is some info on how to get insurance coverage for Naturopathic medicine.
In many states, Naturopathic physicians are licensed to practice medicine. Therefore, unless your insurance policy specifically excludes naturopaths, by law they must cover the services. Because naturopathic physicians are usually not included on the list of covered providers, the reimbursement you will receive will usually be an “out of network” reimbursement.
To find out if your insurance company will cover your naturopathic medical services, there are a few things you can do.
1. Look at your policy.
If the “Definition of Physician” in your policy does not specifically either exclude naturopathic physicians, or limit the definition to specific providers other than naturopaths, then you should, by law, be covered for your naturopathic services.
2. Call your insurance company.
The following are a few suggestions of what to say/ask while on the phone: Does my policy cover services performed by a licensed naturopathic physician?
(they will typically say no, because many agents are unaware of what naturopathic medicine is) Does the “definition of physician” in my policy specifically exclude naturopathic physicians? (ask them to fax you a copy of the definition) Does the definition limit services to specific health care providers? Which ones? Naturopathic physicians are primary care physicians licensed to practice medicine in many states.
If your policy covers naturopathic medical services, simply file your claim as you would any other medical claims. Your naturopathic physician can provide you with any necessary diagnostic codes, procedure codes, etc.
If your policy does not cover naturopathic medical services, you can try to modify your policy. Most insurance companies will write a plan to cover naturopathic medicine, but you must request the coverage, depending on if your plan is an individual plan or a group plan.
Individual Plan
Ask your agent to add coverage for naturopathic services. There may be a small charge for this service ranging from nothing to a few cents a month.
Group Plan
Most insurance companies do not charge anything extra to cover naturopathic services on a group plan. Tell this to your employer, union, or human resources director, and ask that naturopathic physicians be added to your plan. If necessary, organize and educate your coworkers on the value and benefit if naturopathic medicine.
