Louise Ramey, RN, NP
For those of you who do not know me, I am a Naturopathic Practioner, and have over 30 years experience as a Registered Nurse. I believe my education and training offer a unique insight into health and wellness from both the traditional and natural points of view.
In 1999, I took a leave from the field of nursing when my youngest son was diagnosed with Autism. We were devastated when he was diagnosed but it became my mission to help him reach his highest potential by implementing nutritional supplementation, healthy eating, and ABA Therapy. It was through helping my son, that I discovered that there were many other options for treating one’s health.
In 2010, I began to struggle with several of my own health issues. Drawing from my experience helping my son, I started my own journey of researching other options to restore my health. I went back to school and learned through my Naturopathic Practitioner studies that if you “give your body the support it needs” it will help it to function more effectively. Now I want to share that knowledge with you and those who are struggling with their own health issues and concerns.
I have been married to my husband Ted for 25 years and have two adult sons. In addition, we have 2 rescue pets, Max (the cat) and Babe (the dog) who bring added joy to our family. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking healthy meals, experimenting with new recipes, gardening, traveling and spending time with my family.
So, what is a Naturopathic Practitioner ?
“A traditional, classical naturopath specializes in wellness. That is to say, teaching clients how applying natural lifestyle approaches can act to facilitate the body’s own natural healing and health building potential. The traditional naturopath does not undertake to “diagnose” or “treat diseases,” but rather recognizes that the majority of sub-health conditions are cumulative lifestyle effects, and that the underlying cause of what we call “disease” (or, “dis-ease”) is improper diet, unhealthy habits, and environmental factors which cause biological imbalances leading to a weakening of the bodies’ natural defenses and subsequent breakdown in health.”
“The practice of Traditional Naturopathy is not considered the practice of medicine and is currently legal in all 50 states,except South Carolina and Tennessee.”
“The practice of Traditional Naturopathy is recognized as a common occupation at the Federal level (U.S. Congress 1928, 1929, 1930 and 30 Federal Court rulings between 1958 and 1978) and as such it is a profession protected under the 14th and 9th Amendments of the U.S. Constitution.”Source: New Eden School of Natural Health & Herbal Studies
