Over 2,400 years ago Hippocrates, also known as the Father of Medicine, promoted "the healing power of nature." He believed in the body's natural healing ability, when supported by adequate rest, a healthy diet, and good hygiene. Naturopathic Medicine is based on this ancient philosophy and has been practiced in North America since the early 1900s.
Naturopathic Medicine is an integrated healthcare system that focuses on preventing disease and maximizing overall well being. With a holistic, whole person approach, Naturopathic practitioners use a combination of physical exams and advanced lab tests to find the cause of the illness, and use evidence based natural therapies to treat the cause, leading to symptom relief.
Every patient is unique. Therefore during consultations, Naturopathic practitioners conduct intensive medical history research to formulate an individualized treatment plan. Some therapies include nutrition and lifestyle counseling, herbal medicine, nutritional supplements and regenerative injections.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.
