Naturopathy

What Is Naturopathy

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.

The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavorable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.

In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.
In Canada, the naturopathic medical profession’s infrastructure includes accredited naturopathic medical programs, standardized North American Board Exams (NPLEX) and jurisdictional exams, national standards of practice and, regulation in five provinces to date.

Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient.

Naturopathic medicine treats all forms of health concerns — from pediatric to geriatric, from irritating symptoms to chronic illness and from the physical to the psychological. It is the approach, philosophy and training of naturopathic doctors that sets it apart from other forms of health care.

Patients looking for:

• Health promotion
• Disease prevention
• Help with symptoms that conventional medicine has been unable to address
• Supportive and/or adjunctive treatments for those diagnosed with any illness
• Help managing a chronic condition or life-threatening illness
• Help minimizing the side effects of drugs, surgery, or other conventional treatments.

Health is a life-long process and it doesn’t happen by chance – so everyone’s a candidate for Naturopathic Medicine.
