Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a unique system of medicine that blends modern scientific knowledge with natural, traditional healing methods. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to determine the underlying cause of illness and to support the body on a journey towards health. For example, if a patient presents with period pain, it’s important to determine why the body is causing such a symptom and begin treatment there, rather than simply mask it.  Naturopathic Doctors treat both acute and chronic conditions and use various therapies to provide healing, including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture and lifestyle counseling.
