Naturopathic Medicine is a science-based and holistic healthcare system. It combines traditional, natural, and modern scientific knowledge to meet the needs of each patient. The main goals of Naturopathic Medicine are to determine the actual cause of symptoms, optimize the patient’s health, and prevent future illness. Naturopathic Medicine is distinguished by its philosophy of self-healing and the body’s amazing ability to repair itself.
A Naturopathic practitioner considers the person as a whole to incorporate all internal and external factors that could be affecting the optimal health and physiology of the patient. Their goal is to discover the root cause of disease to treat chronic and acute health issues. Every treatment plan is created to specifically support each individual patient.
Naturopathic Modalities Include:
Nutrition and nutraceutical supplementation
Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
