Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care system that draws on both traditional healing methods and modern medical science. It encourages the body’s self-healing process through the use of natural therapies such as nutrition & lifestyle counselling, herbal medicine, physician grade nutraceuticals, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, homeopathy, injectables, and bio-identical hormone therapy.
Using conventional diagnostic procedures, physical examinations and lab testing, Naturopathic doctors aim to determine the root cause of a person’s illness and develop a unique treatment plan according to the individual needs of each patient. They also have prescriptive rights and when deemed necessary will use them. Anyone from newborns to the elderly can benefit from naturopathic medicine and we encourage preventative medicine for all ages; getting general health advice for children, teens or adults is part of achieving optimal health.
