Naturopathic medicine is a unique form of primary health care that integrates current scientific evidence with the art of natural/traditional medicines. It is based on providing individualized care for specific patient needs with an emphasis on prevention, treating the root cause and optimizing health. A Naturopathic Doctor focuses on naturally occurring substances, minimally invasive methods, and the promotion of natural healing to address health concerns. In order to achieve sustainable health goals, a Naturopathic Doctor’s approach is to understand and address the underlying root cause of disease with a focus on long-term health and disease prevention.
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are trained similarly to conventional medical doctors in the respect that they use physical examinations and laboratory testing to help determine a diagnosis. However, an ND's treatment approach differs in that it involves the use of natural therapies rather than pharmaceutical drugs. Treating both acute and chronic conditions, Naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual's unique physiological, structural, psychological, social, environmental, and lifestyle factors.
Treatments and Conditions Treated
Naturopathic assessments, diagnoses and treatments draw from a number of modalities (therapies) and depend on the case and patient’s preference for treatment. Treatments are always tailored to the individual and may include a combination of Acupuncture and Asian Medicine, Clinical Nutrition, Botanical (plant-based) Medicine, physical treatments, and lifestyle counseling.
Naturopathic Doctors are high trained to treat a wide range of health complaints and conditions. Some common conditions treated include digestive issues, stress management, allergies, colds and flus, hormonal imbalances, infertility, pain management, sleep issues, and weight management. Education is a primary principle of Naturopathic Medicine, which allows you to work as a team with your Naturopathic Doctor in choosing the best options for you and your family's health.
