Naturopathic Doctors treat people - not conditions or illnesses.
Your symptoms are an important part of your story because they are the first signal of some disruption in the normal, healthy functioning of the body. As such, they help us identify the imbalances that lie at the root of your health challenges.
In Naturopathic Medicine, our goal is to identify and treat the underlying cause. For example: a migraine may mean a food allergy for your co-worker, a hormonal imbalance for your sister, or a stress-response for you. Each of these scenarios requires a different therapeutic strategy for successful outcome.
Naturopathic doctors understand that prescribing a quick fix for your symptoms – without addressing why they occur - will not produce lasting results.
Naturopathic Doctors work with the body, not against it
Naturopathic Medicine is founded on the belief that your body has a natural desire and ability to heal itself. We refer to this as the “healing power of nature”. In naturopathic practice we trust and support - in the gentlest way possible - the body’s inherent capacity to restore health.
We use therapies that are safe and non-invasive to minimize the risk of harmful side effects. And we always adapt our treatment plans according to your response.
If a Naturopathic Doctor isn’t part of your health care team, you’re probably not seeing the “big picture”.
Many factors - physical, mental, emotional, hereditary, environmental and social - influence our well-being. Naturopathic Doctors are trained to carefully evaluate the whole person. Without this holistic perspective - important connections between symptoms can be overlooked.
Our goal is to provide a personalized and comprehensive treatment plan that meets your immediate needs but that can also be tailored to the prevention of disease – based on your risk factors for the future.
It’s time to move beyond “one-size-fits-all” healthcare and recognize that the path towards health and healing is unique to each of us.
