We don’t simply prescribe pills to suppress symptoms. Naturopathic Doctors know that symptoms appear when the body is trying to correct imbalances caused by poor nutrition, improper rest, toxic burden, poor stress management, infections and other lifestyle factors. Our focus is therefore on determining and eliminating the underlying causes of a person’s health problem, so that the body is able to heal itself.
Our Naturopathic Doctors employ the principles of Functional Medicine and testing to determine these imbalances. Functional Medicine is a science-based field of health care that considers the complex interaction of patient history, genetics, biochemical individuality, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness.
Specialised testing is often utilized to help gain a greater understanding of a person’s unique health situation.
The food you eat can be the safest form of medicine, or the slowest form of poison. Proper nutrition is the cornerstone of Naturopathic Medicine, and dietary plans are personalized and may involve nutrient supplementation depending on the individual.
Nature has provided us with some of the most powerful medicines…plants. Botanical medicine is the application of plant constituents and herbs for the purpose of helping the body handle stress, reduce inflammation, eradicate infection and end fatigue.
