Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. 

 

The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. 

 

Symptoms of disease are seen  as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.  Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the 

individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors.

 

In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments. 

 

In Canada, the naturopathic medical profession’s infrastructure includes   accredited educational  institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee  initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.
