NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

Blending Traditional Medicine with Modern Scientific Advances

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct healthcare profession that focuses on promoting and restoring optimal health for patients. Licensed naturopathic physicians (NDs) combine modern, cutting-edge scientific advancements with traditional methods and practices to diagnose and treat their patients from a holistic perspective. NDs are guided by six principles when treating patients.

 

NDs are experts in natural treatment options for patients. The training received during the 4-year accredited, doctoral-level naturopathic medical program is similar to that of our MD and DO colleagues, but also includes extensive training in natural therapies like clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, and others.

Six Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

First, Do No Harm -

choose the most natural, least invasive, and least toxic therapies when possible

1.

Identify and Treat the Causes -

look for the underlying causes of illness

3.

Treat the Whole Person -

view the body as an integrated whole and understand all areas of the patient's function - physical, mental, emotional

5.

The Healing Power of Nature -

trust in the body's inherent ability to heal itself

2.

Doctor as Teacher -

educate patients so they can achieve and maintain health

4.

Prevention -

focus on overall health and emphasize prevention of future illness and disease

6.

 

YOU DESERVE MORE. YOU DESERVE BETTER.

Are you looking for a doctor who spends time listening to your concerns and hears you as a person?

Do you feel like the root cause of your illness is never fully explored?

Is prevention of future disease a priority for you and your family?

Do you prefer to try natural treatment options first when it's safe to do so?

Ever wish there was more time at your doctors visits so you could learn more about your diagnosis and prognosis?

This is naturopathic medicine, plus so much more.
