Naturopathic Medicine

A Holistic Approach to Optimal Health and Wellness

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a system of healthcare based on the belief that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) work to support and enhance this natural healing process using a variety of therapies, including herbal medicine, nutrition, physical medicine, and lifestyle counseling.

Naturopathic medicine is a form of alternative medicine focused on using natural remedies to promote health and wellness.

Naturopathic doctors are trained in a variety of natural therapies and are often seen as a complementary form of healthcare. They work with patients to develop personalized treatment plans that may include dietary and lifestyle changes, supplements, and natural remedies. Naturopathic medicine is based on the principles of “first, do no harm” and “treat the whole person,” and practitioners often collaborate with other healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care.

Naturopathic medicine is used to treat a wide range of health conditions, including chronic conditions such as allergies and diabetes, as well as acute conditions such as colds and flu.

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

  1. First, do no harm: Naturopathic doctors strive to use the least invasive and most natural treatments possible.
  2. The healing power of nature: Naturopathic doctors believe that the body has an innate ability to heal itself and that natural therapies can support this process.
  3. Identify and treat the cause: Naturopathic doctors look for the root cause of a health problem and aim to treat the underlying cause rather than just the symptoms.
  4. Treat the whole person: Naturopathic doctors consider the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of a person’s health and aim to treat the whole person rather than just the disease.
  5. Education and prevention: Naturopathic doctors aim to educate their patients about how to maintain optimal health and prevent future health problems.
  6. Doctor as teacher: Naturopathic doctors see themselves as teachers and guides, helping their patients to take an active role in their own health and wellness.
