Naturopathic medicine is a system of complementary-alternative medicine encompassing a combination of natural therapies from around the world including nutrition, homeopathy, herbal medicine, lifestyle counseling, and acupuncture in the prevention and treatment of disease.
Naturopathic doctors blend traditional wisdom and modern scientific research to select safe and effective treatment strategies individualized to each patient, and use techniques that stimulate and support the body’s innate healing abilities.
Naturopathic therapies are safe and gentle, and generally carry fewer side-effects than pharmaceutical drugs.
Naturopathic medicine is a holistic system of medicine, meaning that symptoms are viewed as indicators to underlying imbalances in health and are interpreted in the context of the whole person.
Naturopathic doctors seek to identify and treat the root cause of illness in order to heal the patient from within.
