How To Look at Your Health Like a Naturopathic Doctor

When a person is feeling well, and is in equilibrium with their environment, the body is readily eliminating toxins efficiently. These toxins are the ones we come into contact daily ~ environmental from pollution, the pesticides and additives in our food, heavy metals in our water, pharmaceuticals, and mental negative self-talk, to name some.
