Naturopathic Medicine utilizes a system that uses natural remedies to help the body heal itself. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to treat the whole person; mind, body, and spirit. It also aims to heal the root causes of an illness, not just stop the symptoms. Naturopathic medicine combines traditional naturopathic treatment approaches like homeopathy, herbal medicine, and acupuncture, with modern health science. They may also use touch, such as massage and pressure, to create balance in your body. This is called naturopathic manipulative therapy.
Our Doctor of Naturopathy is furthermore a Registered Functional Medicine Practitioner. Functional Medicine aims at optimal functioning of the entire body and its organs. It addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach in partnership with understanding the conditions and history in which the disease manifested. Genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors all have a direct influence of long-term health and chronic health issues.
