Conditions seen by Naturopathic Doctors

Dr. Gleixner ND and Dr. Weeks ND often tell their patients that they don’t treat symptoms. Without further explanation, it would seem that there wouldn’t be anything left to treat! On the contrary, through extensive detective work, many problems in the body can be revealed. Correcting underlying imbalances is our specialty.


Because many symptoms are often uncomfortable, we maintain the importance to provide relief from your symptoms. Lack of sleep, pain, anxiety attacks, skin rashes, gas and loose stools for example are not very pleasant. Palliating such symptoms can increase comfort in a patient’s life while the underlying causes are addressed.


The goal is to determine and address the reasons why your body has developed symptoms.  Within this philosophy, symptoms are used as a guide to discover the underlying imbalances in your health. In weight gain for example, numerous imbalances exists that prevent fat loss even when a superb diet and exercise program are in place. Underlying causes includes stress, inflammation, low thyroid function, sex hormone imbalances, blood sugar dysregulation, poor liver function, a sluggish digestive tract and neurotransmitter imbalances. There can even be other reasons!


By understanding how your body is working (or not working), treatments can more specifically address the true cause of your medical condition. Naturopathic treatment will be more individually prescribed to re-balance bodily systems and therefore provide better long-term success. By treating in this manner, virtually all chronic and most acute conditions can benefit.
