Naturopathic medicine is a medical discipline that focuses on supporting the body’s inherent ability to heal. It is based on tenets that seek to:
- Identify and remove the causes of disease
- Empower patients to take responsibility for their health
- Provide safe and effective care for the treatment and prevention of disease
Naturopathic medicine provides patient-centered, individualized care, tailored to each patient’s specific needs.
Naturopathic physicians are primary health care providers, trained to treat both acute and chronic diseases. Naturopathic treatments also lend themselves especially well to preventative medicine. Naturopathic medicine can be used to treat a full range of disorders including: allergies, colds, flu symptoms, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, digestive disorders, menstrual and menopausal symptoms, prostate issues, sprains, strains, back pain, sports injuries, headaches, fatigue, anxiety and depression. Naturopathic doctors are trained to treat children, adult (both women and men) and geriatric health issues.
