Naturopathic Medicine/Training Defined
Naturopathic medicine blends centuries old natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in the study of health and human systems, covering all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care. Naturopathic medicine concentrates on whole-patient wellness. The medicine is tailored to the patient and emphasizes prevention and self care. Naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. Registered Naturopathic Doctors cooperate with all other branches of medical science referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.
Registered Naturopathic Doctors (N.D.’s) attend a 4 year post-graduate naturopathic medical school. To get accepted into a naturopathic medical school one needs to have completed 4 years of pre-med. A Registered Naturopathic Doctor needs a minimum of 8 years of Dept. of Education approved training to graduate from an accredited naturopathic medical school
In naturopathic medical school, the first 2 years are identical to any medical school in the country. The second 2 years, instead of learning about pharmaceutical drugs and surgery we study natural therapies exclusively along with completing 2 years of supervised clinical experience.
My Story - Why I Do What I Do
My life story has been steeped in gut health issues. I was born to be an expert in gut health and nutrition, not by choice, but by necessity. When I was young, I was smaller and shorter than my friends and I was always sick with gut issues, IBS, stomach aches, poor endurance, fatigue, and brain fog. As a child, I was often fighting a cold, flu, or tonsillitis.
Our family doctor always prescribed antibiotics. So, by the time I hit puberty, I had taken multiple doses of antibiotics several times per year.
Due to the constant barrage of antibiotics on my poor intestines, I often had stomach aches and either constipation or diarrhea. I had a weak appetite and only wanted to eat sugar and junk food. Later, I didn’t even want that anymore. I was withering away! I looked emaciated.
In 1995 I discovered that I had many food allergies and leaky gut issues. Eventually I realized that I had high susceptibility to celiac disease. As a result, I experimented with many diets: vegetarian and vegan (20 years!). I added animal protein back into my diet in 1995 and added even more during pregnancy and lactation. I finally took a food allergy test and eliminated the offending foods plus gluten and saw a significant improvement in my health.
I decided to make this my life purpose...helping other people suffering from the same. I graduated from a Naturopathic medical school, Bastyr University, where I learned about nutrition, supplements, and herbal medicine along with the science that people learn in a traditional medical school. After graduating, I began seeing patients and noticed that I seemed to have a knack for helping the patients who were suffering from autoimmune and inflammation issues.
Today I can say that I have a lot of experience in my personal life navigating trying to explain to my family what I am doing to heal myself dietarily as well as going through the emotional issues that naturally surround making lifestyle and diet changes. I have experienced ALL of them at one time or another so I come to you with both experience as a clinician helping people transition to a more healthful food plan for themselves as well as my own journey to more vibrant health.
This audio recording is the story of me as a child and teenager. During those years I was smaller and shorter than my friends and I was always sick with gut issues, IBS, stomach aches, poor endurance, fatigue, and brain fog. It was not pleasant but after going through many many tests and different diets and after trying so many things to improve my health, in 1995 I discovered that I had many food allergies and leaky gut issues. Eventually I realized that I had high susceptibility to celiac disease.
Due to my own health issues that I have had in my life, I have experienced major transformation through naturopathic medicine. Proper diet, healthy thought patterns, fresh air, exercise and the correct nutritional supplements when needed can strongly influence one's health once the right terrain for healing exists. I am passionate about transforming health and enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with others so that they can live their best and most vibrant lives.
Hi Dr Goldin,
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you did for me. My latest pap results, ncluding the HPV test, were completely normal. I even got the standard letter in the mail. I was moved by tears the day I received it and it's all thanks to you. I was so happy to have healed my cervix without any invasive surgeries and using only naturopathic treatments.*
All my best,
Although we haven’t needed to bring my son in to see you for quite a long time, we are so grateful for your assistance in bringing him back to health. After he began your supplement regimen a little over a year ago, he recovered from his MRSA infection and hasn’t looked back. He started preschool in the fall and didn’t get so much as a cold until Christmas. I can count on one hand the number of times he’s been sick this winter and in each case it was very mild and quickly overcome. He’s also become a better eater, making better food choices, perhaps because he feels so much healthier. I can’t thank you enough! Your help was truly an answer to our prayer.*
