What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine or Naturopathy is the art and science of treatment and prevention using natural therapies. Naturopathic Medicine is complete, holistic, natural, evidence based medicine employing a variety of modalities including homeopathy, herbal remedies, acupuncture, diet (nutrition) and lifestyle counseling. Some Naturopaths are cross-trained in other areas such as hypnotherapy and doula services.

Naturopathic Medicine blends scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.

A Naturopathic Doctor (ND) is a primary care provider that takes an individualized treatment approach to restore optimal health for you. Your ND can integrate their therapies with the treatments you are receiving from other health care providers.
