What is Naturopathic Medicine?

naturopathic medicineNaturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of primary care that addresses the root cause of illness or disease and promotes health and healing. Naturopathic doctors are highly educated primary care providers who integrate medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies.

• Establishing a detailed understanding of the patient
• Obtaining a complete history, including current health status and contributing factors to any complaints
• A physical examination and any recommended laboratory and diagnostic testing
