What is a Naturopathic Doctor?

Naturopathic medicine draws from both traditional wisdom and modern scientific advances to promote health, and prevent and treat disease.

Naturopathic philosophy favors an holistic approach to your health, which means that patient visits are typically longer to provide the doctor enough time to consider all aspects of the patients health before recommending treatments or further assessments. Treatments might include dietary advice, nutritional supplements, exercise and lifestyle advice, acupuncture and herbal therapies, or hands-on physical therapies. Because of this broad scope of practice, Naturopathic Doctors are often thought of as the GP's of alternative and complementary health care.
