What is Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a unique and comprehensive form of primary healthcare, which integrates modern scientific diagnosis and treatment with the art of traditional healing. It is a distinct healthcare profession built on a patient-centered approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of a variety of therapeutic interventions. Using investigative methods such as a detailed health history questioning, physical exams, and laboratory testing, naturopathic doctors support the unique and intelligent natural processes of the human body and work with their patients to create individualized treatment plans.

Naturopathic medicine follows the philosophy that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself. Naturopathic doctors focus on understanding the origins of acute and chronic disease by looking beyond individual symptoms. They treat the whole person by addressing the root cause of a disease, in order to help a patient achieve long-term, sustainable health and wellness.
