Immunity & Infection

Do you often get sick or feel run down? Naturopathic medicine can help you figure out if you are experiencing low immunity or if you’re dealing with a viral versus bacterial infection. Often people don’t realize that our bodies are capable of fighting off many infections naturally. It is when we’re experiencing bacterial infections that our bodies may need some extra help from antibiotics. Naturopathic treatments can help our body combat infections such as:

  • Common colds
  • Influenza
  • Chickenpox
  • Infectious mononucleosis
  • Viral pneumonia
  • Earache
  • Sore throat

If you do need antibiotics, naturopathic treatments can help support your body alongside the medication. Antibiotics are considered one of the most important medical breakthroughs in history; however, overuse of antibiotics has caused several infections to become resistant to their use. It is important to only use antibiotics when deemed necessary, followed by supporting the body to re-establish our good bacteria.
