BENEFITS OF NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention using natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine / acupuncture, and lifestyle counselling. A Naturopathic Doctor is a primary care practitioner that seeks to restore and maintain optimum health in their patients by emphasizing natureís inherent self-healing process. A Naturopathic Doctor views the individual as an integral whole including the physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors affecting health. 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 disease as an entity. The primary goal is to treat the underlying cause of the disease. This approach has proven successful in treating both chronic and acute conditions. Treatments are chosen based on the individual patient, not based on the generality of symptoms. Naturopathic doctors can also complement and enhance health care services provided by other health care professionals. They cooperate with other branches of medical science referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate. Naturopathic Doctors provide patients with a truly integrative form of health care. In Canada, the naturopathic medical professionís infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.

A Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine practices as a primary care provider. They treat patients of all ages, from all walks of life, suffering from every known disease. They make a conventional Western diagnosis using standard diagnostic procedures such as physical examination, laboratory tests, and radiology. However, they also make a diagnosis using physical and laboratory procedures to assess nutritional status, metabolic function and toxic load. In addition, a considerable amount of time is spent assessing the patient's physical, mental, and emotional state. Therapeutically, NDs use virtually every known natural therapy: dietetics, therapeutic nutrition, botanical medicine, physical therapy, message therapy, lifestyle counseling, exercise therapy, homeopathy, acupuncture, psychological, hydrotherapy and family counseling. Each society regardless of where it is in the world has learned to treat their people resulting in a significant increase in knowledge that has evolved through the passage of generations. Medicine has branched out in many directions with Western Medicine making tremendous achievements in pain killers, antibiotics and surgery while Eastern and Asian Medicine have tried to focus on the root cause of the illness. American Medicine, with its European roots, also did the same thing until the discovery of antibiotics. The drug industry has also profited in the discovery of patented drugs but sometimes problems arise because of the side effects and additional complications that arise from taking medication over an extended period of time.
