It is basic common sense that the food we eat will affect our health, but all too often this critical component of wellness is neglected in favor of pharmaceutical or surgical interventions. Even when we realize that we need to eat better, we are constantly bombarded with so much conflicting information; it is hard to know what to do and who to believe. As naturopathic practitioners, we believe that the first responsibility of any health care provider is to “do no harm.” Following that philosophy, we believe that the most holistic, natural and least invasive therapies should be the first attempts we make, and the simplest process with the biggest effect is often a change in diet. More and more people in Orland Park are realizing that what they eat plays a huge role in their health, and are beginning to seek good nutritional data.
The goal of homeopathic medicine is to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. Being holistic, naturopathic practitioners realize that the human body has a natural ability to heal itself. In many cases, naturopathic medicine is all about removing the obstacles that are interfering with the body’s natural healing ability. For many patients in Orland Park, the first step in this process is improving their diets.
Naturopathic nutrition is a holistic therapy. Every individual responds to food differently, and has slightly different nutritional requirements. As a naturopathic physician, Dr. Van Lopik will work with you to determine your own particular dietary needs, and how to best enhance your health and general well-being. With an in-depth testing process at our disposal we can provide a complete assessment of the current condition of your body, its nutritional data and what food sensitivities you may have, each patient will receive a comprehensive evaluation and customized treatment plan.
