Do you feel like you go to your doctor, spend ten minutes explaining a single symptom, are then given a medication you don’t want to take and feel like you were never even heard? These days patients are rarely touched or heard by their doctors. There simply isn’t enough time to preform anything but the bare minimum. When is the last time you had a full hour to explain everything that was going on in your body and discuss your suspicions on how it all might be related? This is what we do at Stellar. We look at your whole body, because everything is related. Our goal is to find the cause of your symptoms and offer natural remedies to improve your health at the deepest level. We want to prevent unresolved causes of symptoms from becoming something more serious down the road. Sure, it can be a bit more work. But there is no shortcut to anyplace worth going.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession. It emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of natural substances that encourage the inherent self-healing process of the individual. The practice of Naturopathic Medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific and empirical methods. In the state of Oregon, Naturopathic Doctors are licensed to diagnose, order and interpret lab work, prescribe prescription medications and preform spinal manipulation. With so many tools at our disposal many Naturopaths choose an area of expertise. Dr. Della focuses on holistic health using a form of muscle testing called the Treatment Selection Method. She pairs this empirical method with the guidance of Functional Lab Evaluation to offer the most effective results for each individual patient.
The model of holistic health looks at the whole body not just isolated symptoms. DNA contains the blueprint for our entire body and it is found in every single cell. This means that every part of our body is related to every other part and should not be evaluated as isolated systems. Holistic doctors treat people and not symptoms. Because any symptom, no matter where it is being expressed, can be coming from dysfunction anywhere else in the body. The whole person needs evaluation to identify and treat the cause of a condition.
Dr. Della does not believe in the cookbook approach to treating patients. This method, commonly used in Western Medicine, treats a named health condition in the same manner with every patient that is diagnosed. Using the holistic model, we could take ten different patients with the same diagnosis and identify ten different causes of disease. This may warrant ten different treatment plans for each individual patient. With the methods utilized by Dr. Della, she is able to identify where there is dysfunction in the body, supply what is needed to restore function and greatly improve your symptoms from the inside out.
