Some doctors identify their patients by what ails them. Some patients also self-identify by the condition they have. By investigating the individual as well as the condition, the cause of the problem can be isolated and more successfully treated.
Most conventional doctors use a “cookbook” approach to treat patients. They use protocols to treat diseases while disregarding the host. This takes the functioning of the individual’s body out of the equation. Dr. Della rejects this idea and instead uses a holistic approach to treatments. Using the holistic model means that the whole person is addressed. For example, ten different patients could present with high cholesterol. They each may receive a different treatment recommendations based on the functioning of their whole body.
Dr. Della treats all types of conditions, but has a special interest in digestive problems, chronic fatigue, and thyroid dysfunction. As a Naturopathic Doctor, her license allows her to prescribe pharmaceuticals, as well as help patients wean themselves off of them. She believes that when the functioning of the whole body is addressed, rather than isolated symptoms, amazing results can be achieved.
