Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Traditional Naturopath?
A traditional naturopath has earned a Doctoral degree in naturopathy*, which takes 3 to 5 years to obtain. A traditional naturopath is a descendant of the original naturopaths, and is a non-invasive practitioner who does not diagnose, prescribe, treat or cure diseases.
How is it different from "conventional" treatments and approaches to health?
Traditional naturopathy is different from Allopathic and conventional approaches to health in that a naturopath educates, empowers, and enlightens the patient. Traditional naturopathy is focused on total wellbeing, not just masking symptoms and issues. Traditional naturopaths like Julie Miller are invested in helping you cleanse your body and spirit as you begin your journey to better health inside and out.

I have heard that some side effects can occur when taking a holistic approach, such as rashes, loose stool, or a feeling of being sick. Is this true?
When the body is full of free radicals and toxins and you choose to get control of your health, those symptoms are a sign of the toxins/free radicals are being removed from the body as it attempts to rebuild new cells to fight off any new external obstacles. There maybe initial side effects of detoxification (detox)... But those side effects aren't unique to our holistic approach and are often found with any detox regiment. Detox side effects are not long lasting and subside when your body is cleared of offending chemical, metal, bacterial, fungal, parasitic, and viral invasions.
What can I expect to experience during detoxification (detox)?
One can expect to feel nauseated, dizzy, and you may experience headaches depending ion the amount of free radicals and toxin that have been held in your tissue. Once the initial detox is over, your body will find its natural balance and you'll feel better than ever.
