what is naturopathy?
Naturopathic medicine has been around for more than a century, but its philosophy and tools are as old as medicine itself. Naturopathic doctors look for the underlying impediments to health and tailor treatments specifically for each individual patient. Our major medicines are gentle, effective and natural substances including food, water, plants and minerals.
Naturopathic doctors are primary-care physicians, the general practitioner who helps you maintain your ongoing health. Working together, we will identify your unique health needs and create a plan to address them. Expect this to be a long-term relationship.
