What is naturopathic medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a specialty that utilizes the most up-to-date research in its approach to the treatment and management of acute and chronic conditions. Areas of influence on treatment often include: diet, nutrients, botanicals, pharmacology, and physical medicine. The root cause of disease is often multi-factorial, and naturopathic medical doctors assess for, and treat, all of the causative factors. This inclusive method branches across many specialties like primary care, internal medicine, endocrinology, gastroenterology, rheumatology, and neurology. They recognize how the body systems are massively influential on one another, and improvement in health often cannot be made without embracing a more global approach. Patient care that uses this integrative process often results in a faster, and more complete, return to health.
