Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease.
What can Naturopathic Medicine do for you?
Our Naturopath treats you as an individual by addressing the physical, environmental, lifestyle, attitudinal, and emotional aspects of health (Want to meet the doc? Click here!). This allows us to find and treat the cause of the disease using natural, non-invasive therapies.
What to expect at your Appointment
Naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. Once our naturopathic doctor conducts a thorough assessment considering the factors above, she creates a personalized health plan; this may include, in addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture.
