Naturopathy

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.  The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease.  Symptoms of the disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body and unfavorable lifestyle habits.  Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as part of a process rather than as an entity. 


Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient - their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental, and lifestyle factors.  In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.
