Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care system that combines modern medical research with the ancient traditional knowledge of natural medicines from around the world. The grounding philosophy is based on finding the root cause of illness, removing the obstacles to health, and stimulating the body’s innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathic medicine uses a holistic approach that focuses on treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit - using the most gentle and least invasive approaches possible. Naturopathic treatment options include botanical medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine (including acupuncture and Chinese herbs), mental/emotional and lifestyle counselling, clinical nutrition and dietary recommendations, nutritional supplementation, hydrotherapy, physical medicine and bodywork, and laboratory testing.
