Edmonds Senior Center has joined Bastyr University’s community medicine network and is offering the naturopathic Team Care approach in your community.

-Menopausal symptoms

-Stress-related conditions

-Allergies and asthma

-Cardiovascular disease

-Ulcers

-HIV/AIDS

Naturopathic medicine is a form of primary care medicine, which emphasizes prevention and wellness. Underlying causes of illness are investigated as means to promote patient’s wellness. Therapies and treatment plans are designed to fit the individual needs of patients, focusing on the whole person – including the physical, social, emotional and spiritual aspects of health. The Team will blend centuries old knowledge of natural treatments with current research in health and natural medicine. Practitioners can work with patient’s medical doctors and help patients become partners in their own health care.
