Naturopathic

 

Naturopathic Doctors are licensed healthcare providers who have a minimum of seven years of post-secondary training. They are primary care providers who integrate standard medical diagnostics with natural treatments to treat health concerns. In addition to utilizing natural treatments, they perform physical exams, diagnostic lab tests and imaging studies in order to diagnose a wide variety of health conditions. 

Naturopathic doctors are unique due to the following philosophies that guide their care:

They first aim to do no harm by using treatments that support your body’s ability to heal and minimize the risk of harmful side effects.

They focus on you, as a whole person, by taking into account the physical, mental-emotional and lifestyle factors that affect health. 

They aim to treat the underlying cause of health concerns rather than only focusing on the symptoms.

They empower people through education to become actively involved in improving their health and quality of life by enabling them to make choices that proactively address health concerns.

They endeavour to prevent health concerns by recognizing and modifying personal risk factors and removing barriers to health. 

“The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, exercise, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
