Dr. Swanz is a Fellow of the Homeopathic Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
Holistic medicine is a philosophical approach for healing that considers the patient’s entire health picture, including the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of the self. Recommendations are made based on the complete picture and are selected to encourage the body’s own healing processes. With the holistic approach there is an emphasis on addressing the underlying lifestyle factors that have contributed to the current state of disease.
Naturopathic Medicine is a philosophy of medicine practiced by a naturopathic physician. Naturopathic physicians are medical practitioners that attended a 4-year accredited post-graduate medical school that trains and educates primary care physicians to diagnose and treat patients with acute and chronic illness from a holistic perspective.
Alternative medicine is any approach that is being practiced in addition to the standard of care treatments. Many individuals are looking for options outside of the traditional standard of care model for themselves and for their families. Alternative medicine is a generic term describing the various other options that are available today. As a Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Swanz is uniquely trained to help patients navigate the terrain between the conventional and alternative medicine options.
