The Heart of Naturopathy

By Dr. Corin Tomlinson

November 16, 2023

In a world where healthcare often revolves around treating symptoms, naturopathy stands out by offering a holistic approach to wellness. At Coastal Integrative Health & Wellness, we believe in the power of this approach to not only heal but also enrich lives. This post delves into the essence of holistic health and why it forms the core of our practice.

What is Holistic Health?

At its core, holistic health is about viewing the body as an interconnected system. It’s a belief that true wellness comes from balancing not just the physical aspects of our being but also the mental, emotional, and sometimes spiritual components of our lives.

The Naturopathic Approach

Naturopathy, rooted in the philosophy of holistic health, takes into account the unique complexities of each individual. Unlike conventional medicine that often targets specific symptoms, naturopathic medicine seeks to uncover and treat the root causes of illness. This approach includes a range of therapies like dietary changes, herbal medicine, and lifestyle adjustments.

Why Consider Holistic Health?

Embracing holistic health can lead to profound changes. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Comprehensive Care: 

It considers all factors that influence health, including lifestyle and environmental factors.

  1. Personalization: 

Treatments and advice are tailored to the individual, acknowledging that each person’s path to health is unique.

  1. Prevention Focus: 

By focusing on the whole body, holistic health naturally leans towards preventing illnesses before they start.

Our Philosophy at Coastal Integrative Health & Wellness

At our clinic, we integrate the principles of naturopathy into all our services, from acupuncture to IV therapies. Our goal is to guide each individual towards a state of balanced health, empowering them with the knowledge and tools to maintain this balance.


Holistic health is more than a method of treatment; it’s a way of life. It encourages us to look deeper into our health and to make choices that support all aspects of our well-being. At Coastal Integrative Health & Wellness, we are committed to guiding you on this journey towards holistic health.
