Naturopathic medicine combines traditional medicines with current scientific research to support and stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Rather than treating a collection of symptoms, ND’s understand these symptoms as warning signs of underperforming body systems and address the underlying root causes to support the body as a whole.
Individual, Holistic Patient Care
Naturopathic medicine is based on the understanding that each patient is unique, and an individual approach is needed to address the physical, environmental, lifestyle and emotional aspects of health. Looking at a full patient history alongside laboratory test results allows naturopathic doctors to find and address the unique root causes of a patient’s symptoms using a variety of therapies.
A Whole-Body Approach
Whereas conventional medicine typically aims to reduce the symptoms of the diagnosed disease using pharmaceutical therapies or surgery, a Naturopathic approach looks for the root causes of those symptoms, allowing issues to be addressed earlier in their development and from a variety of angles.
