Our Approach

Naturopathic medicine is a form of health care that blends old, proven medicines with new scientific knowledge and advancements. Unlike other conventional health care practitioners, naturopathic doctors focus on the underlying cause of patient illness, rather than treating only the physical symptoms. 

Naturopathic doctors utilize a number of diagnostic methods common to conventional medicine, including physical examinations, laboratory testing, gynecological exams, nutritional and dietary assessments, metabolic analysis, allergy testing, and X-ray examinations.

Once a diagnosis has been made, naturopathic doctors use a wide variety of natural techniques to treat their patients. NDs are the only primary care givers who are clinically trained in natural therapeutics, and are capable of combining these treatments with other forms of medication. Many illnesses, both acute and chronic, can be effectively treated using natural treatments.
