What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is a different approach to health, using the roots of traditional medicine with the branches of modern science.  It is whole-person medicine, centered on empowering you to take control of your health, not just on managing your symptoms or diseases.   True health encompasses body, mind, and spirit; it begins and ends with you. 

What do we do? 

Naturopathic doctors act as guides to assist you in the process of gaining and maintaining health.  Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained to assess disease, as well as lifestyle.  Using that information, NDs start first with natural, low-invasive therapies.  If needed, NDs will use higher-force interventions or work in conjunction with other practitioners who do.
