What is Naturopathic Medicine?


Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of health care that takes a comprehensive, individualized approach to address the root cause of illness.  Naturopathic doctors, being highly trained primary care providers, combine scientific knowledge with a wide range of natural therapies to promote health and well being. 

Recognizing that illness or disease can be influenced by several factors, naturopathic doctors take an integrative approach, exploring not only physical, but mental, emotional, environmental and genetic aspects, when comprising an individualized treatment plan. 

The primary goal of treatment is to address the underlying cause of disease rather than suppressing symptoms, and to support the natural healing process of the body, with an emphasis on health education, and prevention.
