What is naturopathic medicine?

It is a system of primary health care that promotes wellness and prevention of illness or disease by addressing the underlying causes. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.

Our naturopathic doctors integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies that support the body's own healing ability. Naturopaths understand the value of taking the time to listen to, and understand, the complexity of each individual and to provide the needed support and various treatment options to achieve personal health goals.

Treatments and prevention techniques include:

  • Acupuncture/Asian medicine
  • Botanical medicine
  • Physical medicine
  • Clinical nutrition
  • Lifestyle counselling

Naturopathic medicine plays an important role in integrative health care, and treatments are used on their own, or together, with conventional medicine.
