About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a form of medicine that’s been practiced in North America for over 125 years. It combines the latest advances in western medicine with traditional medical practices from around the world. Naturopathic medicine is built on a patient-centered approach that focuses on prevention, treatment, and good overall health. Naturopathy promotes the body’s natural ability to heal and helps patients achieve sustainable health and wellness.

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) work with natural remedies that promote the body’s natural ability to heal. We avoid surgery and other invasive procedures and treat them as last resorts. NDs emphasize illness prevention through a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Naturopathic care focuses on the individual, their overall health, their family history, their lifestyle choices, and the environments they live in.

Botanical Medicine

Botanical medicine involves the use of plants which have been used safely and effectively for centuries in disease prevention and treatment. Their medical uses and effects are well documented in historical texts and are the subject of an increasing amount of recent scientific research.

Modifying Your Lifestyle

Environment and lifestyle have a significant impact on health. Contamination of food, water, and extreme changes in diet can pose a significant risk to patients. NDs evaluate lifestyle factors and alter them when appropriate.

Stress Management and Counseling

A core belief of naturopathic medicine is that emotional health and physical health are dependent on one another. Naturopathic medicine believes that counseling and stress management are effective techniques that promote good general health.

Nutrition

The connection between nutrition and wellness and inadequate nutrition and disease is well documented and is a large part of naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic application of clinical nutrition involves the use of dietary science and specific foods for the prevention and treatment of disease, the correction of dietary deficiencies, and the promotion of wellness.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine are two parts of a system that’s been in use for thousands of years for the diagnosis and treatment of disease as well as in pain relief. This system evaluates the flow and balance of energy in the body and includes the use of Chinese herbs and acupuncture.
