About Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that integrates traditional, natural therapies with modern medical diagnostic science and standards of care. It is defined in part by the natural therapies it uses and by the philosophical principles that guide its practitioners.
Naturopathic physicians specialize in promoting health and wellness and in preventing disease. They view each person as an integrated whole of mind, body, and spirit, looking beyond symptoms to identify and address the underlying cause of illness. While adhering to guidelines for disease management, naturopathic treatment is oriented to each person’s unique needs. Naturopathic physicians, utilizing the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies, stimulate the body’s natural healing force to restore and maintain health.
