What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Unique in its holistic, natural approach to health and healing, naturopathic medicine offers tailored treatments to help patients obtain optimal wellness on all levels – physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. Wellness means more than the absence of pain and disease. It is having the energy to work and enjoy life to its fullest potential. Naturopathic practitioners help restore health by supporting the body’s inherent healing mechanisms using natural and conventional methods.
The seven principles that unite Naturopathic Doctors are:
❖ The healing power of nature ❖ Find and treat the cause ❖ First, do no harm
❖ Treat the whole person ❖ Doctor as teacher ❖ Prevention ❖ Wellness
In practice, licensed naturopaths work in cooperation with other healthcare providers to provide the best care and outcomes for patients.Visit our Practitioners page to see who offers this therapy at NCIC.
