What is Naturopathic Medicine? 

Naturopathic Medicine is a system of primary health care that uses a contemporary understanding of health and disease alongside an understanding and application of traditional and natural medicine. Naturopathic doctors seek to identify the underlying causes of disease and employ treatments that help the body to heal itself. 

Our tools include clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, physical manipulation, pharmaceuticals, acupuncture, homeopathy and counselling methods.

Education

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are educated in the same basic sciences as Medical Doctors (MDs). Where we differ is with our focus on treating the cause by using minimally invasive therapies.
