Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic Medicine is a primary health care system that involves the use of natural therapies and medicines to help stimulate the body’s own healing powers and maintain optimal health.
Through individualized patient care, a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) will treat the cause of the disease and not just suppress any symptoms.
Patients are treated as a whole and all aspects including mental, emotional, physical and spiritual are taken into account during the process of diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.
