WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of individualized health care that emphasizes prevention, optimal health, and the self-healing process through the use of natural therapies.

The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern traditional, scientific, and empirical methods. It accentuates the need to look at the whole person while treating each case with a specific type of care geared toward the individual. Therapies of naturopathic healing are supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals from many disciplines, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, clinical nutrition, phytotherapy, pharmacology, homeopathy, psychology, and spirituality.

Our Principals Are The Foundation of Naturopathy

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) blend centuries-old knowledge and a philosophy that nature is the most effective healer with current research on health and human systems. One goal in mind--to help you feel better, restore your health, and reach optimal wellness. When your body is not in top shape, your entire outlook on life can be affected. As your body begins to work in the way nature intended, your spirit soars--and so will you!

What training do Naturopathic Doctors receive?

Licensed naturopathic practitioners (NDs, or NMDs who have completed a four-year medical school and trained in complementary medicine) are clinically trained in using natural remedies as well as traditional medicine, though they generally care for patients with a holistic approach combining safe and effective therapies. In practice, Naturopathic medicine considers the fundamental components of health biochemistry, biomechanics, and emotional predisposition.

Modalities

The therapeutic modalities used in naturopathic medicine include; Clinical Nutrition, Botanical medicine, Environmental medicine, Chinese medicine, Homeopathy, and Hydrotherapy. In addition, naturopaths are well-trained in counseling and pharmaceuticals. Naturopathy focuses on healing the whole person, many health conditions are easily improved through our philosophies and methods. The common conventional techniques and tools that are effective for suppressing symptoms in a time of crisis are also commonly used for chronic care. The results of this have been dismissal. The difference between managing disease vs. promoting health is not just a contemplative wordplay, it is real.
