Naturopathy Explained

Naturopathy is a medical discipline that integrates science and western medical diagnostics as well as natural therapies. Naturopathic treatment may comprise aspects of several medical disciplines, including acupuncture, herbal medicine and clinical nutrition.

Naturopathic medicine focused on identifying the root cause of illness within the body, rather than primarily bandaging symptoms. It takes a holistic approach to healing, meaning that it aims to treat the entire person.

Naturopathy uses a variety of safe and effective natural, drug-free treatment methods. Treatment may include diet and lifestyle changes, acupuncture, vitamins and supplements and injections and herbal remedies.

Naturopathic doctors perform complete physical examinations, as well as laboratory and diagnostic tests such as blood work, urinalysis, and saliva testing.

A wide variety of health conditions and concerns can be treated with naturopathy, including:

  • Cardiovascular Care
  • Lowering Cholesterol
  • Lowering Blood Pressure
  • Correcting Digestive Problems
  • Skin Treatments
  • Mood, Energy and Stress Treatments
  • Pain Management
  • Helping Immune System Imbalances
  • Hormonal Imbalances
