Your body’s ability to heal itself is much greater than you think
Naturopathic medicine has the potential to safely treat diverse lifestyle diseases as well as common maladies including gastrointestinal conditions, asthma, skin conditions and allergies. Whatever the condition, naturopathic treatments aim to uncover the root causes of illness through a natural-first approach. Additionally, naturopathic treatments are designed to prevent rather than cure. The doctor will advise patients on how to improve their health on a life-long basis, rather than simply managing symptoms of disease as they arise.
Naturopathic medicine encompasses therapeutic methods, including both modern and traditional medicines like botanical medicine, counselling, homeopathy, acupuncture, IV therapy and nutritional therapy. Naturopathic medicine is a science-based approach that integrates complementary therapies into a modern medical framework. Nowadays, naturopathic physicians are trained and licensed as primary care physicians.
