What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a primary healthcare, evidence based system that utilizes a multidimensional approach to health.  It examines the entire condition of the patient, not the mere manifestation of disease.  Holistic systems of medicine, are employed to understand the totality of disease and promote self-healing.

The natural approach is one that acknowledges our need for balance to achieve physical emotional and spiritual health.  It starts by acknowledging that health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.  

Why choose Naturopathy?

Naturopathic medicine is the medicine of long appointments, hours of investigation and patient hand holding.  In naturopathy, you are the expert in your own body, you present your case, and we patiently listen.  After your case is presented, it is toughly analyzed and a full plan of a path to healing is presented.  The plan is meant to be a blueprint for a journey through health that must feel as comfortable, natural and inspiring as you need it to be.  Upon being presented the plan, you are to agree to the plan, work with us to tweak it to your needs or ask for an alternative with the presentation of your needs.  Once a plan is agreed upon, you are instructed on how to implement the plan and how to approach roadblocks.  Remember, the point is for you to be empowered so that you can take care of your health and maintain your results long term.
