Dr. Buttler’s unique approach to addressing the underlying cause of disease.

Diagnosis

Friends on a pathThis is the first step at beginning to understand what is happening within your body. Dr. Buttler uses your health history, physical examinations, and blood work to assess your health concerns.

Functional analysis is also an important part of Dr. Buttler’s diagnostic approach. This is a way of arriving at a diagnosis through your symptomatic expression. Through functional analysis, Dr. Buttler can begin understanding the cause of your health problems.

Education

Once a diagnosis is established, Dr. Buttler will begin working with you to help you understand why you are feeling the way you do. There is a saying that goes “Give a person a fish and feed them for a day. Teach a person to fish and feed them for a life time.” Lifestyle education is a significant part of how Dr. Buttler will begin addressing the cause of your symptoms. The focus of lifestyle education is on your nutrition, how you exercise, how you breath, how you sleep and how you deal with stress and emotions. As you begin understanding your relationships with the decisions you make and how they affect your health, this will empower your body to begin healing.

Nutrition

Dr. Buttler uses very specific types of therapeutics diets to reduce the amount of inflammation in the body while also improving blood sugar response. Both blood sugar and inflammation are essential to address in order for improved health to occur. He will customize and individualize a nutritional plan for your healthcare needs as you begin treatment. Reducing the nutritional burden is a key component when working with the body to improve immune function when healing starts to occur.

Physical Medicine

One of Dr. Buttler’s specialties and something that makes him a unique naturopathic physician is his ability to address your pain. Dr. Buttler uses physiotherapies and manual therapies to treat the cause of pain rather than masking the symptoms. He will customize a physical medicine plan for your specific health care needs as indicated by your assessment and diagnosis.

Detoxification

A primary treatment of Dr. Buttler’s is Biotherapeutic Drainage. This treatment is aimed to optimize overall performance and function within the body. When symptoms are occuring, helping the body to remove toxicity (both physical and emotional) is crucial in order to restore optimal physiologic function.

Emotional Therapy

Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET) is treatment that Dr. Buttler uses to address the emotional cause of disease. As we all know stress has the capacity to make us very sick. When you are working to improve health, you need to change your response to stress while understanding what you have control over in your emotional life.
