What is Naturopathic Medicine?

The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and to treat the root cause of disease. For many patients, this difference in approach to health provides them with a new perspective and awareness. By addressing the root cause(s) of disease and through the appropriate use of natural therapies many patients with chronic illness have found tremendous benefits.


Is Naturopathic Medicine For Me?


Naturopathic doctors focus not only on the symptoms but also on the underlying conditions causing the symptoms. Naturopathic medicine treats all forms of health concerns -- from pediatric to geriatric, from irritating systems to chronic illness and from the physical to the psychological. It is the approach, philosophy and training of naturopathic doctors that sets it apart from other forms of health care. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, orthomolucular nutrition (IV therapy),  naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.
