Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease using natural therapies, with a focus on promoting health and well-being through individualized patient care and public education. The primary goal of a naturopathic doctor is to understand the patient and all the factors that impact on their health. Naturopathic treatment addresses the cause of illness, rather than simply suppressing symptoms. Virtually all chronic and most acute conditions can benefit from treatment by Naturopathic Doctors.

Treatment strategies focus on prevention, and stimulating the body's ability to heal itself. Naturopathic treatment can complement conventional medical treatment.

Naturopathic doctors use a variety of treatment modalities including clinical nutrition, Chinese medicine and Acupuncture, homeopathy, botanical medicines and lifestyle counseling.

Botanical Medicine

Botanical Medicine is the use of herbs and plant extracts as natural medicines. The natural constituents of medicinal plants are used as safe and effective treatments with minimal side effects. Herbs can be prescribed in tablet, capsule, powder, solid extract or tincture form.

Lifestyle Counselling

Naturopathic doctors help patients make effective and healthful lifestyle choices. Personalized programs for the integration of positive changes will help each individual discover aspects of their health that can be improved upon, and then begin to make beneficial modifications.

Clinical Nutrition

Clinical nutrition entails the use of special dietary recommendations along with nutritional supplements to address your health needs. Special dietary plans, supplements and patient education are the focus of a good treatment plan. The role of your Naturopathic Doctor is to help you get started on a proper nutritional program that best suits your lifestyle and health requirements.

Homeopathy

The physician Samuel Hahnemann developed homeopathy in the 1700’s. It is based on the principle “like cures like” and involves using minute amounts of natural substances to stimulate the body’s self-healing abilities. Remedy selection is tailored to an individual’s unique characteristics and complaints to achieve the safest and most effective results.
