What is naturopathic medicine, anyway?

Naturopathy treats the root cause

Naturopathic Doctors focus on the underlying condition(s) which may be causing your symptoms. They treat the root causes of disease and work proactively to address preventable risk factors.

Naturopathy is all about prevention

Diabetes, heart disease, obesity and stroke are among the top health concerns plaguing Canadians today. In the majority of cases, these diseases are preventable. Naturopathic medicine can help you identify susceptibilities, and guide you towards a healthier future by recommending some tailor-made dietary and lifestyle changes.

Naturopathy Treats the Whole Person

Naturopathic doctors rarely treat a single body part or symptom. Instead, they consider all factors: physical, emotional, social environmental and genetic. Looking at your entire health history they piece together your unique story and create a treatment plan which addresses all aspects of your health.
