Naturopathic practice blends centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies with the latest advances in science and technology. Naturopaths are board-certified and licensed primary care physicians, trained to treat all aspects of family care, from pediatrics to geriatrics. Naturopathic medicine employs a philosophy which: treats the whole person; body, mind, and spirit, utilizes the healing power of nature, searches for the underlying cause of disease, believes prevention is the best cure, starts with the least invasive therapies first, and educates and empowers patients to achieve and sustain optimal health.
