Becoming a patient of a Naturopathic Doctor can return you to a true awareness of your body as an integrated system. Most naturopathic patients find amazing benefit from this increased self awareness of both mind and body.
Naturopathy oftentimes reveals effective ways to manage and prevent serious health issues before surgery or other extreme measures must be taken. A Naturopathic approach may also be integrated with your current medical care for maximum healing potential. Naturopathic Doctors follow certain principles, one of which is “doctor as teacher,” and so while they treat you, they also educate you about your own health.
Naturopathic Doctors focus on healing you and your condition(s), rather than simply treating the symptoms of your illness or disease. Beginning with your nutrition and lifestyle, a Naturopathic Doctor will work with you to identify areas of your overall health that can be improved to bring your body back into balance. This gentler, non-toxic, common-sense technique may reduce or eliminate the need for medication in many cases.
Naturopathic Medicine, also known as Naturopathy, is a complementary form of medicine that follows a holistic approach, where practitioners view you as not just a patient, but also as a whole person.
