What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is a standalone system of medicine recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) which is holistic and seeks to understand all the factors that may be affecting a person's health. Naturopathic doctors strive to find the underlying cause of illness rather than simply covering up or suppressing symptoms. By listening carefully we can understand all the factors contributing to your health problems and uncover the underlying causes. Naturopathic medicine is appropriate for the management of a broad range of health conditions affecting people of all ages.
The emphasis of naturopathic medicine is on prevention and restoration of balance in the body, mind and spirit. Naturopathic Doctors recommend natural, non-invasive therapies aimed to support and encourage the body's innate healing processes. One of our main goals is to educate you on what you can do to promote health in your own life.
Naturopathic therapies include:
- Clinical nutrition

- Metabolic Detoxification
- Vitamin, mineral and enzyme therapy
- Mind/Body Medicine
- Physical Medicine
Is Naturopathic Medicine Research-Based?
Naturopathic diagnostic and therapies are supported by scientific research drawn from peer-reviewed journals from many disciplines, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, complementary medicine, clinical nutrition, etc.
