The art and science of natural healing

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to improve health and treat illness. With the focus on prevention, and use of natural substances and treatments, naturopathic doctors (NDs) support and stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal itself.

The primary goal of naturopathic treatment is to address the cause of illness, rather than simply treat or suppress symptoms. The patient is seen as a whole person and the ND takes the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimension into account when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.

How is Homeopathic Medicine Different?

Homeopathic medicine is one of the therapies that naturopathic doctors integrate into a total treatment program. A homeopathic practitioner, on the other hand, uses only a homeopathic approach. Naturopathic doctors are the only health care professionals trained in homeopathy as part of their standard educational program and examined in homeopathy for registration or licensing purposes.

Do NDs Interact With Other Health Professionals?

Naturopathic treatment protocols include a multidisciplinary approach to medicine. NDs recognize that health is much more than the absence of disease, hence by working with other integrated health care professionals, including medical doctors, dentists, osteopathic doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists, and midwives the maximum therapeutic benefit for the patient is achieved.

What Treatments Do NDs Use?

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

Oriental medicine includes the use of acupuncture and oriental herbs to balance the flow of Chi (energy) through meridian pathways in order to achieve optimum health.

Physical Medicine

A variety of hands on and trigger point techniques used for the health of the spine, joints and soft tissue. Physical treatments also include the therapeutic use of hydrotherapy, light, massage, Bowen technique, magnetic fields, traction table, and ultrasound.

Botanical (Herbal) Medicine

The use of plants for healing dates back to the beginnings of civilization and is the foundation of modern pharmacology. Plant substances from around the world are used for their healing effects and nutritional value.

Clinical Nutrition

Clinical nutrition examines the relationship between diet and health. Special diets may be recommended, and treatment may include nutritional supplements such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutraceuticals.

Homeopathic Medicine

Based on the principle of “like cures like” homeopathic medicine was developed in the 1700s. Minute amounts of natural substances are used to stimulate the body’s self healing abilities.

Lifestyle Counselling

Physical, emotional, nutritional and environmental factors affect health. NDs help patients make effective lifestyle choices.
