Naturopath Overview

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine promotes wellness and the prevention of illness and disease. Naturopathic doctors integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies. Naturopathic medicine plays an important role in integrative health care, and treatments can be used on their own or together with conventional medicine.

Naturopathic Medicine addresses the root cause of illness. It supports the body’s own healthy ability using treatments and prevention techniques that include acupuncture/Asian Medicine, botanical medicine, physical medicine (such as massage and hydrotherapy), clinical nutrition, homeopathic medicine and lifestyle counselling.
