Nat Med Month 2: Low Energy and Being Tortoise Healthy

Our celebration of naturopathic medicine continues with another myth, a question, and a tip! Myth: “Naturopathic Doctors are anti-medicine.” Naturopathic Doctors work with patients to rebalance their bodies toward health and healing.  That rebalancing, which often includes a healthy diet and lifestyle, can reduce the need for some medications–and that’s a good thing!
