Why Choose A Naturopath
Naturopathic medicine is a form of primary health care that combines modern scientific knowledge with natural forms of medicine. The philosophy of naturopathic medicine is to identify and treat the root cause of disease as a means to resolve presenting symptoms. Naturopathic doctors work to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself, while implementing preventative health care strategies to ensure an optimal quality of living. Naturopathic doctors view the body as an interconnected network of systems and will create individualized treatment plans that work to maintain balance within the body. Naturopathic doctors are trained in a variety of treatment modalities such as clinical nutrition, lifestyle counselling, botanical medicine, acupuncture, intramuscular injections, intravenous therapies, and pharmaceuticals. All of our NDs have completed a university undergraduate degree and an additional four years of training at an accredited naturopathic college.
