Introduction to Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a comprehensive and natural approach to improving health and treating illness. It is a distinct profession of primary health care providers who emphasize preventative medicine and the promotion of optimal health through patient-centered education and individualized treatment.

The primary goal of naturopathic medicine is to address the cause of illness, rather than simply treat or suppress symptoms. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) view their patients from a holistic perspective and therefore consider the emotional, spiritual, mental and physical aspects of a person when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.naturopatic doctor

All initial appointments take between 60-90 minutes. This amount of time is needed to obtain an in-depth health history as well as an overall picture of mental, emotional and physical factors affecting your current health status. If necessary, a complaint-oriented physical exam is performed and an individualized treatment plan is then created to best address your personal health goals.
