An alternative approach
Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy embodies the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention. It provides the patient with a perspective on health that is different from the current disease-focused model and considers their vital force (vis medicatrix naturae) just as it considers their environment, life experiences, ability to adapt and the totality of physical symptoms and responses.
An Integrated Approach
Naturopathic Medicine blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine and traditional mind-body approaches to health and disease. Each treatment plan is created specifically for the individual and is reassessed and adjusted as the body responds.
