WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of individualized health care that emphasizes prevention, optimal health and the self-healing process through the use of natural therapies. The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods. It accentuates the need to look at the whole person, while treating each case with the specific type of care geared toward the individual. Therapies of naturopathic healing are supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals from many disciplines, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, clinical nutrition, phytotherapy, pharmacognosy, homeopathy, psychology and spirituality.
