Naturopathic medicine blends centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in the study of health and human systems, covering all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care.
We believe that the source of illness is not just represented by the presentation of a problem, but often has its roots in the way we live, what we eat and how we interact with our environment. We seek the cause of disease and don't just focus on its most apparent manifestations.
Naturopathic Medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic doctors (NDs), also sometimes called Naturopaths, teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance their bodies’ ability to ward off and combat disease.
Therapies utilized with each patient are individualized. Some patients come seeking a supplement or medication that will treat their symptoms, others come with questions about how to prevent certain health conditions, and still others desire an understanding of how their condition began and what efforts they can take to undo the pathology that the body has already adapted to.
Naturopathic doctors craft comprehensive treatment plans that blend the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to not only treat disease, but to also restore health.
