Naturopathy

Treating the Whole Person

Naturopathic medicine blends centuries- old natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in the study of healthand human systems, covering all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care including both acute and chronic conditions.

A Naturopathic Physician (ND) is a primary care general practitioner trained as an expert in natural medicine.Naturopathic medicine concentrates on the wellness of the whole individual.The medicine is tailored to the patient and emphasizes prevention and self-care.

Naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focus solely on symptomatic treatment.For example, congestion might be caused by food allergy or an environmental factor - a naturopathic physician would focus diagnosis and treatment on these causal factors.Naturopathic physicians cooperate with all other branches of medical science referring to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.
