Natural Health > Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine, or naturopathy, believes in the healing power of nature. Naturopathic doctors view their role as supporting the patients' inherent ability to maintain and restore health. A holistic approach, the discipline focuses on treating the whole person, disease prevention, and treating the cause. Practitioners prefer to use treatments they consider to be natural and non-invasive and may involve many modalities. Examples include nutritional counseling, supplementation, herbal medicine, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, bodywork, exercise and lifestyle counseling.
