What is Naturopathic Medicine?

 

Naturopathic Doctors are highly qualified, trained, regulated, and educated primary health care practitioners . Naturopathic Doctors combine standard medical diagnostic procedures with a wide variety of natural therapies.

 

The main goal of Naturopathic Doctors  is the treat the cause and the root of the patient’s illness, rather than the symptoms. Naturopathy focuses on preventative, restorative, and personalized approach to your health.

 

The treatment modalities and options in naturopathy are meant to enhance your body’s self healing ability. Some of the treatment options include: herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathy, and lifestyle counseling.

 

Clinical Nutrition

The therapeutic use of foods and nutrition is widely used among naturopathic practitioners. Nutritional excesses/imbalances, food intolerances, and deficiencies have been highly correlated with certain medical conditions. Naturopathic Doctors are trained to prescribe appropriate nutritional modifications and nutritional supplements to target your health concern, while minimizing complications and side effects, and promoting disease prevention and optimal health.

 

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese medicine is focused around balancing the Qi around all the organs (pronounced chee). The qi is connected via channels called meridians. Naturopathic Doctors use acupuncture in order to balance the qi energy.

 

During Acupuncture, very fine and thin needles are placed into particular meridian points. This treatment is extremely effective for pain relief and chronic illness.

 

Herbal/Botanical Medicine

Medicinal plants contain substances that are very potent and effective when used safely to treat particular conditions. Herbs are typically prepared in different forms. These include loose tea, tinctures (herbs mixed with alcohol), or capsule which contain the dry herbs.  

 

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic remedies are prepared from different substances that contain medicinal properties. In particular the remedies are made from combinations of plant, animal and mineral substances. When the remedies are properly matched to the patient they then stimulate the body’s innate healing ability.

 

Lifestyle Counseling

Naturopathic Doctors are well trained in addressing various aspects of stresses that may impact a patient’s road to recovery. These include counseling on mental, emotional, physical, nutritional, and environmental factors that affect health.
