StethoscopeNaturopathic Doctors are highly educated primary and adjunctive care providers who integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies.

The primary goal of naturopathic medicine is to address the cause of a patient’s illness, rather than treating or suppressing symptoms, with Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) devoting the time necessary to understand each individual patient. NDs are trained and regulated as primary care providers and are able to provide diagnosis and treatment for many diseases. They also provide care that complements treatments received from other health care professions, and are highly trained to refer and consult as necessary. They are able to employ a wide range of therapies to create a preventive, restorative, and individualized approach to health care.

The main tenet of Naturopathic Medicine is the “vis Medicatrix Naturae” – which translates to the “healing power of nature.” This not only means that Naturopathic Doctors use natural substances as therapies but it also means that ND’s recognize that the body has a unique ability to heal itself. Many of the treatments used in Naturopathic Medicine are intended to support and stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanisms.
