Naturopathic Medicine is a form of primary health care that uses natural therapies to promote health and treat disease. As primary health care providers, Naturopathic Doctors are trained in physical and laboratory diagnostics and are trained to provide first contact health services.
Naturopathic Doctors look at each person as an integrative whole, not seeing the person as a set of physical symptoms or as a disease. We look at all aspects of the individual, considering mental, emotional, social, and environmental factors, to see how each impacts on a person's health.
Patient education is a vital part of Naturopathic practice, because it leads to good health. In helping patients to better understand their conditions and the available treatment options, Naturopathic Doctors enable their patients to take an active role in their health.Patient education is also a key to prevention. Using simple manageable steps, Naturopathic Doctors can help to reduce the risk of future illness and injuries without further adding to the stress of everyday life.
Naturopathic Doctors treat each person as an individual, preparing treatment plans that are tailored to the needs of each patient. Therapies used by Naturopathic Doctors include:
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
Naturopathic Doctors practise a safe and effective form of primary health care that uses natural therapies to promote health and treat disease. For treatment, we address the whole person, not just the physical symptoms of the disease, and we emphasize patient education, since it allows patients to make healthy choices.
