Naturopathic medicine is a system of primary health care that emphasizes prevention and the body’s self-healing abilities through the use of natural therapies.
With a focus of treating the whole person, naturopathic physicians take into account each patient’s unique physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors. Rather than eliminating or merely suppressing symptoms, naturopathic physicians work to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness and promote wellness. Drawing from a large toolkit of modalities, naturopathic medicine blends centuries-old natural therapies with current evidence-based treatments.
Naturopathic doctors treat any conditions one would go see a conventional medical doctor for. Chronic conditions (i.e. eczema, digestive concerns, diabetes, depression) or acute condition (injuries, colds); those who have been officially diagnosed with a condition or are experiencing general symptoms (i.e. fatigue, sleep difficulties, pain) and looking to determine the cause; those who are concerned about prevention and risk factors, everyday stress and seasonal changes (detox/cleanse, allergies, colds and flus) or entering a new stage in life (puberty, menopause, pregnancy).
