Naturopathic Medicine is a form of health care that aims to treat the underlying causes of illness, rather than just the symptoms, using a combination of conventional methods and natural therapies. Some principles of Naturopathic Medicine also include: minimizing the risk of harmful side effects, encouraging the body's self-healing processes, treating the person as a whole, and the prevention of disease.
You would see a Naturopathic doctor for the same reasons you would see a family doctor. They do the same diagnosis, exams, but take the time to do a detailed intake. Rather than a pharmaceutical prescription or referral to a specialist, the Naturopathic Doctor will directly treat the condition through a physical therapy, natural remedy, or lifestyle change.
Naturopathic Doctors formulate a treatment plan that is personalized to each individual. It is safe and effective for anyone, and an excellent choice for treating and managing chronic diseases or health issues that have not responded to other forms of treatment.
