What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that concentrates on whole-patient wellness while emphasizing prevention and the process of self-healing through the use of natural therapies. Naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. 

Naturopathic physicians are clinically trained primary care physicians who have graduated from a four-year naturopathic medical school. They work with patients in all aspects of family health to identify the underlying causes of disease and provide evidence informed therapies to help facilitate the body’s ability to restore and maintain optimal health.

We used to provide sugary snacks to clients [in her previous career], and I’d see behavior changes. Clients became more aggressive in their approach toward staff, and I really wanted to know more about why … I wanted to be able to help them in all aspects of their lives.
