What is Naturopathic medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is based on the healing power of nature and it supports and stimulates the body's ability to heal itself.
Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention using natural therapies including: botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, lifestyle counselling and health promotion and disease prevention.
Today, more people than ever before are seeking and benefiting from naturopathic medical care. Naturopathic doctors are experiencing greater recognition as health care practitioners and as experts in the field of natural and preventive medicine Naturopathic doctors are opening up in hospitals, multi-disciplinary clinics and specialized health centres.
If you haven't experienced the benefits of naturopathic medicine yourself, take the time to get a second opinion on your health. We refer to several reputable Naturopathic Doctors in the GTA and Markham. Telephone consultations may also be arranged.
