All Natural Doctor
I am Dr. David G. Young, N.D., a licensed primary care Naturopathic Doctor. I hold three valid licenses to practice primary care medicine. Two are state issued licenses from both the states of Washington and Oregon. The third is a national license from the Pastoral Medical Association. The Pastoral Medical Association is not about being religious. It is a world wide, formal separation of church and state to protect both patients and doctors from the current stealthy trend of infringement and erosion of the patient / doctor relationship. All government / state issued medical licenses are subject to this stealthy erosion.
I treat a wide range of medical conditions. Most patients who seek help, have already exhausted all other avenues of medicine and still have the same problems, unresolved. My practice location is in Battle Ground, Washington. Patients have come as far as Canada, Utah, Florida, Texas, and Massachusetts.
Naturopathic Medicine strives first to identify the cause, then treat the cause; rather then treating only the effects, or symptoms. As an example: If your child suffers from recurrent ear infections, the standards of care of conventional medicine dictates prescribing antibiotics. Chronic use of antibiotics affects the intestinal flora, creating a serious imbalance of that flora, eventually leading to more problems. Ear infections are a symptom, NOT a cause. Most ear infections in children are caused by hidden food allergies, food intolerance reactions that occur four days after consumption causing mucous to form. Any mucous that builds up in the ears can cause ear infections, especially in children. Chronic antibiotic use causes more food allergies; hence, more mucous; hence, more potential ear infections. Other, deeper, more serious underlying problems may also be contributory. Specific blood tests scientifically help to identify underlying health issues. Traditional Naturopathic Doctors always seek first to find the cause of disease, then treat those underlying causes. The result is an increase in overall health and happiness.
Many deeply rooted health problems can usually be traced to a previous trauma. Examples: An auto accident many years earlier that was never properly treated; environmental assaults that left toxic residues that can remain for years; strong emotional influences that may have occurred as an infant, or in the military. Other deeply rooted problems can be traced to lifestyle habits, some even handed down from generation to generation.
Naturopathic Doctors (N.D.) traditionally take all events into consideration, along with appropriate blood tests, and hair tests when appropriate. The word doctor in Latin means teacher. N.D.s always involve the patient in their health care, frequently teaching the patient about the therapies we use, and what their blood tests mean.
It is far better to identify health issues when these are still minor problems, then to wait until a crises develops into a severe health problem. A Comprehensive Blood and Hair Analysis frequently uncovers simmering health problems before they become life threatening. Identifying these causes early, usually only requires some simple adjustments in dietary and/or lifestyle changes. This is valid for any age, from small children to those in their mature years. “Symptom free” does not mean disease free. Essential organ functions can be up to 90% failure without any symptoms of warning. Ill health does not occur overnight.
