Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct health care system that combines modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It embraces longstanding philosophies of medicine and new diagnostic tools to provide a broad non-invasive framework for diagnosis, assessment and treatment.
The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body. In order to do this you must identify and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavorable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as an imbalance rather than as an entity.
Anyone can benefit from Naturopathic Medicine, provided they are interested in investigating the root cause of their issues and are willing to make certain lifestyle changes
