Naturophatic Medicine is based on discovering the root cause of illness, and using natural healing methods to restore health. THis stems from teh philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itselrf. It is our role as Naturopathic Doctors to support this ability.
Naturopathic Doctors use a variety of traditional modalities, often in combination to maximize benefit to the patient. These modalities can treat conditions that are both acute and chronic in nature, and they do not mask symptoms. Rather, they work to make the body and mind stronger, and better prepared for obstacles to wellness in the future.
The traditional modalities that comprise naturopathic medicine include: acupuncture and traditional chinese medicine (TCM), botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, physical medicine and lifestyle counselling.
