Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathy is a form of alternative medicine, based on the idea that the body has an innate capacity to heal itself.  Naturopathic physicians improve health and treat illness by treating each person holistically, tapping a person's own internal body, mind and spirit resources. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care-an art, science and practice of preventing, diagnosing and treating conditions of the human mind and body.

Naturopathy uses a blend of different therapies, all in order to restore the body's health in the most natural, non-invasive way possible by stimulating the body's own healing power.

Naturopathic Doctors use 6 Principles:


1. Nature has the power to heal

2. Treat the cause, not the effect

Naturopathic medicine

3. Treat the whole person
