What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is a comprehensive health care system that integrates modern scientific knowledge and diagnostic technology with natural therapeutic modalities to provide optimal health outcomes. Naturopathic Medicine works at treating the underlying cause of diseases and stimulating the body’s own healing ability. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than an entity: symptoms reflect improper functioning within the body.
The term “naturopathy” is derived from Greek and Latin translated as “nature disease”. Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic approach and minimal use of surgery and drugs.
Naturopathic Medicine is beneficial in treating both acute and chronic diseases. Treatments are individually tailored to the patient, taking into consideration the patients physiological, structural, psychological, social, environmental, lifestyle and spiritual needs. Naturopathic treatments are effective on their own and can also compliment conventional medical treatment.
