An Individualized Approach to Healthcare
Naturopathic medicine is focused on treating the underlying cause of disease, rather than merely the symptoms, to help patients obtain optimal health.
At the root of naturopathic care is the commitment to treat the whole person. Doing so requires knowing more about you – the patient – in order to proceed with an individualized treatment plan. In fact, naturopathic doctors learn a lot about a patient by completing a thorough initial consultation, discussing previous history and by gathering information from physical assessments and conventional lab testing.
Naturopathic doctors also provide individualized evidence-informed therapies that balance the least harmful and most effective approaches to help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimum health. Treatments may include nutrition, supplements, botanical medicine, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, physical medicine and lifestyle counselling.
Naturopaths can serve as primary health providers and can also complement and enhance services provided by other healthcare professionals. This provides patients with a truly integrative form of healthcare that best suits their overall needs.
