Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a primary healthcare profession built on a patient-centred approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment and optimal health using therapeutic methods and substances that support the body’s natural ability to heal and help the patient achieve sustainable health and wellness.

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) use a functional medicine approach to healthcare, identifying the biochemical and physiological imbalances within the individual and apply natural, scientifically-proven solutions to rectify these imbalances. NDs focus on naturally-occurring substances, minimally invasive methods and promote natural healing. They also emphasize illness prevention and a healthy diet and lifestyle.
