“Good Health is not something we can buy. However, it can be an extremely valuable savings account.”
– Anne Wilson Schaef
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system which incorporates the art, science and philosophy of medicine with the practice of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of illness. Naturopathic Doctors work with their patients to treat acute or chronic illness, and restore and optimize their health.
By looking at disease as a process and signal for an improper functioning of the body, Naturopathic Doctors treat the whole body as a unit (the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects) and address the underlying root causes.
To address these root causes, Naturopathic Doctors will use alternative therapies instead of the conventional pharmaceutical prescriptions. These therapies include: Clinical Nutrition, Botanical Medicines, Acupuncture, Homeopathic Medicines, Physical Medicine, Lifestyle and Nutritional Counselling. The result is a sustainable resolution of illness.
