Critically important is to quantify mental health symptoms when practitioners first see patients, and one where many integrative health care providers miss out.

Key Quote  

“I believe that the naturopath should be the frontline in mental health now. The word is getting out that naturopaths can actually be very helpful in these situations, which is why we are seeing more and more individuals presenting with mental health concerns at our clinics.” Dr Philip Rouchotas,, ND

“I think that my experience with cancer three years ago caused me to revisit some of my values and how I live. I've made some healthy changes in my life, like not working so much and taking enough time off. In the past I've found myself in relationships that were not very healthy, but I am currently with somebody who accepts me for who I am”. Dr Michael Traub, ND FABNO

“For me, growing up in a small town and being different, I found my people. Secretly, you know, being a gay child in a small town and then learning that you didn't have to be so secret.  Then, with the seventies, and different alternative lifestyle opportunities, I found I could live in a situation with others that were like me and comfortable and like minded. Women that were learning all these skills that were previously only available to men”.  Dr Tori Hudson, ND
