Do you want to achieve Optimal Health?
Many people are looking for ways to feel better and improve their health. Unfortunately, modern medicine doesn’t have all the answers. If you are looking for something more for your health and wellness, make an appointment with Dr. Sorensen, where she will work with you, creating a partnership to help you realize Optimal Health.
Trained as a Naturopathic doctor at Bastyr University, Dr. Sorensen uses the Principles of Naturopathic Medicine to guide healing. These are:
The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae): Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and augment the body’s inherent self-healing process.
Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle Causam): The naturopathic physician seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms
First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere): Utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects, using the least force necessary
Doctor as Teacher (Docere): Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship.
Treat the Whole Person: Naturopathic physicians treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors
Prevention: Naturopathic physicians emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.
