Alternative medicine covers a broad range of conditions which are, generally, the same as those in which you would see an MD. The main difference is that alternative medicine offers a wider array of options and seeks to identify constellations of symptoms that may point to a specific underlying root cause. Dr Travis Elliott Naturopathic Physician provides alternative medicine Vermont with a focus on the cause of symptoms and a treatment plan that addresses that cause.
Why chose an alternative medicine provider?
A naturopath who provides alternative medicine spends more time getting to know a patient. He or she recognizes that there is much more to success than just addressing symptoms. Getting to know a person’s diet, lifestyle, sleep patterns, stress levels, and family and medical histories, fills in a broader picture than a symptom alone can. Dr. Elliott’s initial interview goes over this type of information and provides new testing to further rule things in or out, such as food sensitivities or a hormonal imbalance.
By finding the source of symptoms a person is currently dealing with, our alternative medicine Vermont can also address prevention. Finding the root source of symptoms allows for the development of a plan aimed at avoiding future triggers. Alternative medicine can combine both pharmaceutical prescriptions as well as herbal remedies, dietary counseling, stress management, cellular recharging, and much more. This wider view of treatment options seeks to eliminate symptoms in addition to proactively preventing them from reoccurring.
Some conditions our alternative medicine provider specializes in include:
- Thyroid second opinions
- Mind/body naturopathic medicine

- Autoimmune disease second opinions
- Brain nutrition for memory loss, anxiety, and mood disorders
- Naturopathic weight loss and detoxification
