Naturopathic medicine is a system of primary health care that integrates current, evidence-based science and traditional philosophy into a unique form of treatment using natural therapies. We believe that disease is a symptom of the body trying to heal itself, and we seek to treat the underlying disease using natural, minimally interfering methods.
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are highly educated health care providers who graduate from accredited medical schools. We treat patients as the unique individuals they are, recognizing that health is not merely the absence of disease, but thriving in all areas of physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes education and prevention, using natural therapies to stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself.
Treatments may include clinical nutrition, lifestyle counseling, botanical/herbal medicine, supplementation, acupuncture, intravenous therapies, injection therapies and physical therapies. We also offer many lab tests that aren’t available through other practitioners helping to uncover the true reason of why you’re not feeling your normal self. ND’s are compassionate and we care about healing our patients from the inside-out and patients love their NDs just as much!
Naturopathic medicine is safe
Our number one guiding principle is do no harm. The treatments we use have fewer side effects and fewer risks than most conventional treatments. We monitor for interactions between herbs, drugs, and nutrients and make sure that the treatments we give have been established as safe practices.
Naturopathic doctors are highly trained
NDs are licensed by professional regulating bodies that hold them to high standards of care. We go through rigorous training that includes anatomy and physiology, diagnosis, and pathophysiology training similar to what MDs get. In addition to our standard medical curriculum, we learn naturopathic philosophies and innovative ways of thinking about medicine. Our education also includes over 1,000 clinical hours of real-world experience working with patients to help them get better.
NDs love their jobs!
Naturopathic doctors love helping people heal. We were drawn to the profession because we recognize that a holistic approach to health is best! Some of us healed our own illnesses with the help of naturopathic medicine, or we saw our friends and family heal from diseases they’d been told were impossible to heal from! Ask any ND why they love their job, and you’re bound to get a rich story!
