I was diagnosed and treated for COPD and asthma by my regular doctor. During allergy season, my lungs would fill with mucus and it would be difficult for me to breathe. My husband recommended I see a different kind of doctor, one that knows how to treat the cause rather than treating the symptom. I went to see Dr. Heather Wdowin, a naturopathic doctor. She was able to help me breathe better and provided natural ways to build my immune system to keep my asthma is check. My lungs are clearer than before and I can breathe much better now.
I have already told my friends and family how great naturopathic doctors are and how they treat the cause of the illness naturally, rater than treating the symptoms with drugs that could be harmful and have bad side effects. My NMD, Dr. Heather is very easy to talk to and spends the time to learn about her patients and their illnesses and then recommends the best treatment. Unfortunately, most people have not heard of NMDs and don’t realize they spend as many years getting their medical education as MDs, therefore are just as qualified to diagnose and treat illnesses and pain as MDs.
