Naturopathy

What is naturopathic medicine?

It is a system of primary health care that promotes wellness and prevention of illness or disease by addressing the underlying causes. Symptoms of the disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavorable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.

Our naturopathic doctors integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies that support the body’s own healing ability. NDs understand the value of taking the time to listen to, the complexity of each individual and providing the needed support and various treatment options to achieve personal health goals.

A healthy diet, consisting of the right balance of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, anti-oxidants, fiber and amino acids, is the most important tool for your body to manage stress and prevent and recover from illness. This is when First Line Therapy is applied, which is a professionally supervised lifestyle modification plan.

Supplements– vitamins, minerals, antioxidants

Bio-identical hormones, a natural hormone therapy, include estrogen and progesterone creams and desiccated thyroid.

Treatments and prevention techniques include:

  • Acupuncture/Asian medicine
  • Botanical medicine
  • Physical medicine
  • Clinical nutrition
  • Homeopathic medicine
  • Lifestyle counseling
  • Bach flower remedies
  • Intravenous therapy
  • Naturopathic doula

Naturopathic medicine plays an important role in integrative health care, and treatments are used on their own, or together, with conventional medicine.
