About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic doctors are primary health care practitioners. They are trained to treat virtually all health concerns from acute to chronic, pediatric to geriatric and physical to psychological.

Naturopathic doctors work with three main groups of people:

  • Patients that are looking for disease prevention and health promotion
  • Patients with a range of health concerns and no clear diagnosis
  • Patients with chronic and severe illnesses

Naturopathic medicine is beneficial for the following types of patients:

  • Patients that are looking for disease prevention and health promotion strategies
  • Patients that have a range of symptoms that they have been unable to address on their own or with the help of other medical practitioners
  • Patients that have been diagnosed with an illness, ofen serious or chronic and are looking for alternative treatments
  • Patients that are looking to combine conventional and naturopathic treatments with the aim of minimizing side effects of drugs, surgery or conventional treatments
