Preventive Medicine

Preventive medicine or preventive care refers to measures taken to prevent diseases, (or injuries) rather than curing them or treating their symptoms. The term contrasts in method with curative and palliative medicine that is practiced by most traditional medicine doctors.

As a Naturopathic Physician, Dr. Fred Arnold feels the best treatment for a disease is always early detection and prevention. The practice of functional medicine allows for early detection, prevention and health optimization by focusing on prevention through nutrition, diet, and exercise with the use of the latest laboratory testing and diagnostic techniques.

Dr. Fred Arnold offers a variety of state of the art testing to evaluate physiological imbalances in the body that can influence long-term health and lead to complex, chronic diseases. The preventative, functional medicine approach, addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Preventative medicine promotes patient-centered care, promoting health as a positive vitality, beyond the absence of disease. Once imbalances are identified involving the patient’s history, physiology and lifestyle that can lead to disease, a customized and individualized treatment is developed in conjunction with the patient to prevent potential health problems and optimize their health.
