As you likely know, I have a lot of appreciation for conventional medicine. Especially when it comes to emergency medicine! As my book states “I have gone through my medical records where the name of the head physician who was in charge of saving my life appears at least a hundred times, and I believe that I would be dead – very dead – if not for the expertise and leadership of Dr. Scott D. Weingart, MD. My thanks, gratitude, and appreciation for the work he and his team have done, and continue to do, is unquantifiable.”
But even before ending up in the hospital, I grew up with a distaste for hippy dippy tree hugging medicine, and I thought naturopaths were in that camp. Boy was I wrong. I actually was wrong about A LOT of things surrounding medicine!
As it turns out, naturopathic doctors, or NDs, go through just as much (if not more) school, residencies, and fellowships as a medical doctor (MD)! They undergo rigorous academic programs studying subjects like anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and pharmacology, ensuring that they have a solid foundation in conventional medicine.
So both NDs and MDs have a comprehensive understanding of the human body and medical sciences, but the focus of their training beyond this differs.
Conventional medicine is awesome when it comes to saving lives… When it comes to restoring health, conventional medicine falls short.
Unlike the pharmaceutical and surgical focus of MDs, naturopaths take a deep dive into natural and holistic approaches to health and healing, recognizing and supporting the body’s ability to heal itself, rather than fighting against pathogens and disease.
Which brings us to viruses and other disease causing pathogens…
In this episode of the podcast, I interview a naturopathic doctor who struggled with significant post-COVID reactions in 2021 extending to now and who now specializes in post-COVID recovery. Amy Derksen, ND is a former competitive athlete and Naturopathic Physician with a full scope of practice in Washington State since 2003. She has specialized in working with both Autism and chronically ill patients, including Lyme disease, and she has shifted her focus to post-COVID recovery as her post-COVID patients have been getting phenomenal results working with her.
In this episode, you will get tools that you can empower yourself with and implement immediately to prevent getting sick, to reverse post-COVID brain fog, and to prevent complications with vaccines.
This is packed with tools and Amy is awesome, so enjoy.
