Traditional medicine often prioritizes symptom-relief over addressing the underlying cause of illness.
But if we look beyond symptoms and approach our wellness holistically, can our bodies begin to provide their own relief?
Naturopathic medicine challenges the traditional standard by working on whole-patient wellness and concentrating on the treatment and prevention of disease by understanding systemic causes.
Dr. Christian Gonzalez is a naturopathic doctor who earned his Bachelor of Science degree at Rutgers University and his Medical Doctorate at the University of Bridgeport’s College of Naturopathic Medicine. He completed his residency at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America and is currently working at a holistic and integrative medicine center in California.
Dr. Gonzalez joins Alexandra and Dotsie to discuss how you can take control of your health and give your body favorable conditions to thrive.
You’ll hear how environmental toxins and stress are affecting your wellness, how naturopathic medicine helps cancer patients, and what you’re really consuming when you eat GMOs.
