Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that uses natural therapeutic substances and methods to promote health and support the body’s natural ability to heal. Naturopathic medicine is patient-centered with a focus on prevention and seeks to address the root cause of the problem as well as the symptoms. Naturopathic doctors assess for physiological and biochemical imbalances in the body and use evidence-based therapies to rectify them.
Naturopathic medicine looks at each patient uniquely as a whole and takes into account how their physical, emotional and spiritual health, family history, environmental influences and lifestyle choices are contributing to their current state of health. Naturopathic assessment, diagnosis and treatment integrates modern and traditional approaches and includes clinical and laboratory diagnostic techniques.
Naturopathic philosophy is based one the following principles:

  •     Using therapies that are minimally invasive
  •     Utilizing the healing power of nature
  •     Identifying and treating of the root cause of disease
  •     Acknowledging the primary role of the doctor as teacher
  •     Treating the whole person
  •     Focusing on disease prevention and health promotion

  •     Clinical Nutrition
