Naturopathic medicine is a unique primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the bodies own power to heal and treat the underlying cause of disease. Both acute and chronic conditions can be treated, with naturopathic prescriptions being chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental, and lifestyle factors.
Naturopathic Medicine can be utilized by otherwise healthy individuals looking for disease prevention and health promotion, patients with chronic and severe illness, and patients with non-emergent acute complaints — both alongside conventional care or as a stand alone treatment depending on the condition.
