What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine, or natural healing, is a distinct field of complementary medicine that blends traditional forms of therapy with modern science. The main philosophy of this field is to harness the healing power of nature to stimulate the body’s own ability to heal. Naturopathic doctors therefore are trained to concentrate on whole patient wellness by addressing the root causes to dis-ease in the body.
Using various modalities listed below, practitioners in this field provide individualized approaches to health and healing by providing the right foundation for the body to heal itself. Naturopathic medicine can be used to support both chronic or acute concerns and provides various options to healing for all ages, including our young ones!
