Naturopathic Medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to improving health and treating illness. It includes diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease using natural therapies. When seeing a Naturopathic Doctor, you will not only learn about health and how it relates to your condition, but you will also be active in determining which treatment options are right for you. The primary goal of naturopathic treatment is to address the cause of illness, rather than simply eliminate or suppress symptoms. The patient is seen as a whole person and the ND takes physical, mental, emotional, genetic, social and environmental factors into account when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan. Treatments are individualized according to each patient and based on both traditional therapies and the latest medical knowledge.
