What is a Medical Intuitive and Naturopath?

What is the difference between a medical intuitive, naturopath and mainstream medical doctor/physician?

A medical intuitive is an alternative medicine  practitioner who incorporates their natural intuitive abilities to determine the cause of a physical or emotional condition through the use of insight. Medical intuitives are often consulted by individuals who have conditions that are undiagnosable with modern medical methods. It's common to seek the advice of a medical intuitive or naturopath when you want to determine the cause of your symptoms rather than medicate or mask those symptoms.

A traditional naturopath uses wholistic treatment methods including modern and traditional, scientific and empirical methods to assess all of your symptoms and create a natural treatment plan. Therapeutic methods such as herbs, nutrition, emotional restoration, biofeedback, etc. encourage the self-healing principles of the body.  A traditional naturopath will work with you to identify underlying causes of an illness or symptoms and attempt to remove the cause rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.

A mainstream medical doctor/physician, also commonly referred to in the United States as one who practices "Western Medicine", is a healthcare professional with a medical degree. In Western Medicine, medical doctors and other healthcare professionals (such as nurses, pharmacists, and therapists) typically treat symptoms and diseases using drugs, radiation, or surgery. 

The role of a naturopath or medical intuitive is to help you regain and retain health in mind, body and spirit. Medical intuitives or naturopaths do not prescribe drugs, perform surgery or administer treatments like radiation or chemotherapy.  

Wholistic Wellness Practitioners such as naturopaths and medical intuitives address the whole person, which means a wide variety of factors, such as your mental, emotional, and spiritual state, diet, environment, family history, and your lifestyle.  There is an understanding that everyone is unique with specific needs; which treatments reflect.

Our bodies have the ability to heal themselves and to restore health and balance between the body, mind and spirit. This aids the body’s healing without suppressing old symptoms by using prescribed medications that can generate new and different symptoms.

This balance can be achieved by the use of dietary advisement, nutrition and other noninvasive therapeutic practices, such as herbs, homeopathy, aromatherapy, body work, flower essences, nutrition, and prayer.
