Naturopathy is a system of medicine that includes natural healing methods that emphasize prevention, treatment and optimum health. Naturopathic medicine treatments and methods support and encourage the body’s natural ability to heal and sustain good health and wellbeing.
Naturopathic Doctors offer a safe and effective way to restore balance in the body by using non-invasive methods, optimal nutrition and natural substances.
Our focus is on prevention and chronic conditions such as:
- Thyroid health
- Stress related conditions
- Hormonal health
We use a combination of:
- Clinical Nutrition
- Herbal medicine
- Lifestyle counseling
A Naturopathic doctor takes physical, mental, and emotional dimensions into account when diagnosing and developing an individualized treatment plan to enable your body to heal itself.
During the naturopathic consultation, your doctor will take your detailed health history and discuss your symptoms and concerns. The goal is to get to the root of your concerns and not just relieve the unpleasant symptoms which can easily return if the underlying cause is not resolved. Naturopathic doctors also work with you on reducing burdens of chronic diseases and focus on lifestyle changes including diet and supplements. This approach reduces or eliminates the need for pharmaceutical prescription drugs that come with a host of unwanted side effects.
Here are the 6 principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
Naturopathic doctors go through extensive training that equips them with knowledge and expertise to help their patients with a variety of health conditions. Just as a family doctors, Naturopathic doctors are primary healthcare practitioners that can treat a variety of chronic and acute conditions and if needed can also consult with or refer you to a specialist.
