Naturopathic Medicine (Subtitle 1-2)
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system which blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of healing. The foundation of Naturopathic Medicine is based on the philosophy that body has an inherent wisdom to heal itself provided obstacles to cure are removed. It is the patients’ self awareness, embodiment of self compassion and self care that ultimately accomplishes healing. Naturopathic Doctors (ND’s) assist in this self healing process by providing safe, natural, least harmful, non-toxic most effective individualized treatment plan which focuses on treating the root cause and not suppressing the symptoms. ND’s like general practitioners treat most health problems-acute as well as chronic and promote health through preventive medicine. As a matter of fact, management of chronic health concerns is where Naturopathic Medicine truly shines. In Naturopathic Medicine, care is initiated with “natural medicines” which are devoid of any adverse effect and lifestyle therapies such as diet, exercise, stress management strategies are weaved into the treatment plan. As improvement occurs, lifestyle therapies dominate and natural medicines and supplements may no longer be required to maintain optimal health. Most importantly, you don’t have to be sick to see a naturopathic doctor. You can consult a ND to optimize your already great health for vital longevity or for graceful aging. Or if there are any inherited conditions in the family, you can choose to be proactive and formulate a prevention strategy with ND’s help to minimize or possibly avoid harm.
