Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care system that encourages the body’s self-healing process through the use of natural therapies such as herbal medicine, diet & lifestyle counselling, physician-grade supplements, homeopathy, bio-identical hormones, and injectables. Naturopathy draws on both modern medical science and traditional healing methods.

Naturopathic doctors (ND) are medically trained with a natural focus. Using conventional diagnostic procedures, physical examinations and lab work, ND’s are able to determine the root cause of a person's illness and develop a treatment plan according to the individual needs of each patient.
