Below is the disclaimer that I am required to post for legal purposes. However, I just wanted to take a moment to say in my own words what this site is intended for. This site is not intended to treat your medical conditions, it is intended to give you hope for them. I cannot be your doctor over the internet, but I can be your teacher. Kitchen Table Medicine is dedicated to the promotion of naturopathic medicine. I passionately believe in the “Vis medicatrix naturae” aka the “Healing power of nature” and am simply writing articles to explain what this natural healing thing is all about, without all the hype, and with as much quality research as I can find to support my ideas and philosophy of practice.
The articles I write are just a tiny-tiny-minuscule glimpse of how naturopathic medicine may be able to help your medical condition. This site should ultimately give you hope that many options are available for treating disease and ensuring wellness. I cannot whole heartedly recommend enough the importance of working with a naturopathic physician for preventative medicine, primary care, or as an adjunct to your health care team. I believe that the only way we can improve the American Sickcare System is through prevention. Writing about preventative medicine, and trying to make it fun is my contribution.
Even as a naturopathic physician, I have my own naturopathic physician to oversee my health and guide my journey through this crazy thing called life. I am not here to treat your disease, I am here to promote naturopathy, advocate for fruits, vegetables, and weeds; educate, answer questions, provide support, inspire, motivate, remind you to breathe, drink water, stretch and go to bed at a decent hour. Maybe I am just something to read in the morning while you sip your coffee (er green tea), or break up mid afternoon office boredom. Hopefully at the very least, I can just make you laugh. After all, laughter is the best medicine.
Sincerely and with all due respect,
Dr. Nicole Sundene
