Naturopathic medicine blends natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in modern medicine. Naturopathic medicine attempts to identify and treat the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. Each person is unique and requires individualized care. In developing a treatment plan to address the cause of any condition, naturopathic medicine takes into account the whole person. Lifestyle, family history, environmental stresses, nutritional status, emotional well-being and general physical state are all carefully evaluated. Naturopathic medicine is appropriate for wellness and a broad range of health conditions affecting people of all ages. Naturopathic medicine concentrates on whole-patient wellness and is tailored to the patient emphasizing prevention and self-care. Using therapies to support the healing process, stimulate the body’s vital force and prevent further disease from occurring, balance can be restored and wellness achieved. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes areas of clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, detoxification, immunology and hydrotherapy.
