Naturopathic medicine has been a distinct health care profession
in America for over 100 years. It experienced a decline in the middle of the 20th century with the rise of technology and
pharmacy. However, naturopathic medicine is on the rise again. Consumers such as yourself are looking for safe and cost-effective
natural healthcare without the use of toxic drugs. Naturopathy blends old-world knowledge of natural and non-toxic therapies
with current advances in scientific research.
Naturopathy is a distinct profession
of primary healthcare with an emphasis on prevention and wellness. Naturopathic physicians are trained in the art and science
of natural healthcare at accredited 4-5 year medical colleges at the graduate level. They are taught to be teachers as well
as doctors, giving the patient information so they are partners in their own recovery.
experience with a naturopathic physician will differ from a regular doctor visit. The first visit is comprehensive and usually
90 mins. This is an in-depth look at who you are and what your concerns are. Follow-up visits are usually 30-60 mins.
Naturopathy follows some basic principles of healing:
do no harm by using the healing power of nature - by giving natural therapies that have no side effects and that do not suppress
symptoms but rather encourages the body's own ability to heal itself.
- to treat
the whole person with respect to their physicial, mental, emotional, environmental and social aspects and not just their current
- to identify and treat the underlying causes as much as possible to
effect restoration of optimal health of the whole person
- to participate in the
client's education by teaching about prevention and wellness so clients may be aware and responsible for their own healing
