What is a Doctor Of Naturopathy?

Naturopathic doctors are trained specialists in a separate and distinct healing art which uses non-invasive natural medicine. Naturopathic doctors tailor the healing modality to the needs of the individual with methods which are effective for both chronic and acute problems. Naturopathy is based upon a belief in the body’s innate natural ability to heal itself when given an appropriate internal and external healing environment. Naturopaths provide patients with natural, historical, and non-invasive options in the treatment of disease and pain.

What Is holistic medicine vs. conventional medicine?

Conventional medicine focuses on treating isolated symptoms with multiple drugs and/or surgery that can have serious side effects.

Holistic health care focuses on proactively identifying the root cause and introducing nutrition based programs that help people slowly modify their diets and lifestyle habits which bring about natural healing and long-term resistance to disease.

Naturopathic medicine focuses on whole body healing; understanding that everything in the body is connected, the approach should be on physical, emotional, mental balance, disease prevention, and in helping the body heal.
