What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a comprehensive, holistic and individualized primary health care system that promotes wellness and prevention of disease. By integrating modern scientific research with the wisdom of traditional medicine, naturopathic doctors use natural substances to stimulate the body’s innate capacity to heal itself. When disease is present, the focus of naturopathic treatment is to address the underlying cause of illness rather than simply suppressing symptoms or managing disease. Naturopathic doctors view the individual as an integral whole, and strive for balance between the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental aspects of self.Within this framework, no two people with the same condition are treated exactly alike.
