Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a form of primary health care with an emphasis on prevention and natural methods of healing. This form of medicine blends evidence-informed traditional healing practices with modern western diagnostics to identify and treat the root cause of illness. The clinical approach of Naturopathic Medicine is to establish a strong foundation for healing by improving sleep, optimizing nutrition, replenishing nutrient deficiencies, reducing stress & toxin exposure, and balancing mental-emotional health. Naturopathic therapies, such as herbal medicine, nutraceuticals and clinical nutrition, can also be used to strengthen and repair organ systems to treat both acute and chronic disease.
