As a naturopathic physician, I strive to bring balance to the body so that it can heal itself in the most effective way. The goal is not only to identify what is going wrong in the body, but the why… this is the identification of the root cause of illness.
WASHINGTON (PRWEB) February 05, 2019

Dr. Randy Gastwirt is a licensed naturopathic physician who focuses on adult medicine – providing comprehensive, personalized and integrative healthcare by understanding the patient’s unique circumstances and the root cause of illness. He says, “As a naturopathic physician, I strive to bring balance to the body so that it can heal itself in the most effective way.

He also has experience in the management of acute and chronic pain associated with musculoskeletal injury, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Patients can expect individually tailored treatment programs including herbs, vitamins, supplements, and diet to target the unique imbalances they are experiencing, bringing the body back to its natural state of health.
