What Is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a unique branch of medicine that incorporates modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural remedies to treat illness and disease. It considers the body as whole and interconnected as opposed to isolated systems. It looks to identify the root cause of illness in order to restore overall wellbeing.
Naturopathic Doctors take the time to listen and understand the whole picture by examining your patterns, symptoms, lifestyle habits, health history, physical exam and lab testing to interpret what is impacting health. Treatment plans are tailored for each patient and can include therapies such as:
- Clinical nutrition
- Nutrient supplements
- Herbal medicine
- Lifestyle Counselling
- Intravenous (IV) & Injection Therapies
Naturopathy plays an integral part of overall healthcare, both in combination with an allopathic/conventional approach or as a main approach for illness prevention and healing.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The first visit with your naturopathic doctor will include a thorough health history intake and may include a physical examination in order to evaluate your condition and develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Once you and your naturopathic doctor have covered all of your health concerns in detail, you will schedule a follow-up appointment to begin the treatment outlined by your naturopathic doctor.
Treatment style and duration will vary by patient.
