Dr. Claire and Why She is an ND

Today on the ZH blog welcome Dr. Claire. Here she writes why she loves what she does. You can also now follow her on her own blog! Clairegirgisnd.com From a young age, I knew I wanted to be in healthcare, because I always had the instinct to take care of people, and I enjoyed doing it. When I was in university, and exploring my options, I found naturopathic medicine and realized it's where I belong! I love that naturopathic medicine gives me the opportunity to sit with my patients and hear them and learn about different aspects of their lives, health, and well-being. I love that no two cases are ever the same because I'm treating a person, not a symptom and the tools at my disposal are so varied. I love that it permits me to delve deeper and encourages me to get to the root of people's concerns, taking into consideration the whole person. I love that one of the goals of my profession is to educate my patients and the public and empower them to take care of themselves and their health!
