At Walla Walla Naturopathic you can expect your doctor to do some or all of the following:
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease. It addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.
Functional medicine integrates traditional Western medical practices with what is sometimes considered “alternative” or “integrative” medicine, creating a focus on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise; use of the latest laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques; and prescribed combinations of drugs and/or botanical medicines, supplements, therapeutic diets, detoxification programs, or stress-management techniques.
More and more, people are finding they are reacting to the foods they are eating. At Walla Walla Naturopathic, your practitioner can help you identify food sensitivities either through blood testing or a guided elimination and challenge diet. This can be very helpful in identifying food triggers to digestive issues, chronic skin rashes, headaches, and general inflammation. Please be aware that the test we offer does NOT determine anaphylactic types of allergies, but food sensitivities that present as chronic conditions or delayed-onset reactions.
Many people experience symptoms of hormone imbalance at some point in their lives. These symptoms can range from pre-menstrual syndrome to menopausal hot flushes. There are many ways to optimize hormone balance including diet and exercise modification, herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, and bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.
Sadly, we live in a what is becoming more and more a toxic world. Luckily, our bodies typically do an amazing job tolerating and clearing those toxins. Sometimes though, the toxic load becomes to great, or some individuals are more susceptible to the negative effects of toxins. At WWN, we can help you identify your toxic exposures, educate you on how to avoid them, and help rid your body of the toxic build up.
If you are looking for a clinic with excellent practitioners who deeply care and will come alongside you on your healing journey, this is the place to come. The care I have received at Walla Walla Naturopathic has exceeded my expectations in so many ways and I believe truly saved my life. Dr. McClintock is very caring and was excellent at listening to my concerns and determining the best course of action for pursuing healing and renewal. She has an amazing depth of knowledge about how the body works and what needs to be supported and encouraged to move forward with both healing and restoration. I can't say enough good about the care I have received. If you are struggling with health issues that you have been unable to resolve on your own and considering seeing either Dr. McClintock or Dr. Figgins, it will be well worth your time and money and is a decision you won't regret!
I have seen Dr. McClintock for various problems over the years. She is unfailingly kind, attentive and knowledgeable. Most recently she was able to offer very significant help for an issue which had stumped other providers. I had nearly given up. She keeps up with the most current research and works hard for her patients. If you have never seen a naturopathic physician I recommend giving it a try. M.R.F
