Naturopathic medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance the body’s ability to ward off and combat disease. Naturopaths are also licensed to prescribe medications.
NDs create a comprehensive treatment plan that blends the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to treat disease and restore health. They treat the whole person by breaking down the barriers to self-healing. Naturopathy is used as a preventative wellness prescription as well as targeted towards root illnesses.
