This week’s podcast we bring in a nutrition rebel, Dr. Garrett Smith, to talk about some of his work in clinical nutrition. Dr. Smith is a Naturopathic physician practicing in Arizona with an interesting guiding principle.
“There is only one guiding principle in the philosophy of my practice. Many know it as the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” While this can be expanded in many ways, in my judgment everything eventually returns to this one concept. If I were the patient, I would want to be fully informed of all of my options, be educated as to why certain treatment approaches are preferable in my situation, understand fully what is being asked of me, and if necessary directed towards places and people where I can obtain necessary items and services for my recovery. My ultimate goal is to help patients get better and stay that way, regardless of treatment modality. That is what I would want, that is what I do my best to provide for my patients.”
