Every patient benefits
As a patient of a Naturopathic Physician, you’ll gain the best of all forms of medicine. The benefits of Naturopathic Medicine are many: a return to true awareness of your body as an integrated system; a regaining of personal power in terms of your well-being; and embracing a more natural lifestyle. The path to this likely includes organic whole foods, exercise, a variety of natural therapeutic modalities, personalized supplementation and herbal remedies, along with a renewed focus on mental, emotional and spiritual health.
Naturopathic Medicine is…
A return to true awareness of your body as an integrated system.
Imagine the benefit of being treated by a physician who’s been trained to view you as a whole person rather than simply as a disembodied disease or an isolated organ system. In fact, many Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) often refer to disease as “dis-ease” and view a disorder of the body as an imbalance, as opposed to an external force. It is because of this multifaceted, personalized approach that NDs integrate therapies which are best suited to the patient and their disease, referring their patients to specialists and other medical providers when necessary.
Naturopathic patients are the ultimate beneficiaries by becoming more involved with their own health, learning how to prevent disease and other imbalances, and receiving quality health care. They gain the expertise of a physician trained in diagnosis and natural therapeutics who is fully familiar with both conventional and alternative disciplines of medicine.
