Naturopathic medicine is a form of patient-centred care that can treat a variety of conditions and symptoms, utilizing an evidence-informed holistic and non-invasive approach.
The goal of Naturopathic Medicine is to identify and treat the root cause of a condition or symptom, and provide the body with the necessary tools to support its ability in healing itself. Ultimately, we want to help you feel your best, and if possible, prevent any conditions from developing in the future.
A wide array of tools can be used by Naturopathic Doctors to help meet your goals, including:
- Diet and lifestyle changes
- Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine
- Botanical medicine
