This week is Naturopathic Medicine Week, a week in which NDs try to inform people about what it is we do and why it's different from the conventional model.
I personally wanted to point out that NDs in Vermont have it better than NDs anywhere else in America. I made a couple posts about it on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
The best part though, is that we get to live in Vermont, with the greatest patients in the country who already understand the importance of eating local and organic, who oftentimes are herbalists or know herbalists, who want to keep our environment clean, and who appreciate naturopathic medicine more than anywhere else from my experience.
On to more practical matters, Tori is out until next Wednesday, so if you aren't getting the same great front office experience you normally get, it's because I'm not as good at it as she is. :)
I'm also extending the supplements sale until the end of the month. Not everyone checks here and our social media accounts, so I want to make sure that as many patients as possible have an opportunity to get the extra discount.
Spotted Jewelweed (Impatiens biflora) is an invaluable tool when out in the woods hiking. The saponins found in the stem or leaves can emulsify and diminish the damage caused by poison ivy. It's also great for bug bites, rashes from stinging nettles, burns, cuts, acne, eczema, fungal infections, or any other skin irritation.
