Naturopathic Medicine Philosophy

  • Concentrates on whole person wellness – the treatment is tailored to the patient and emphasizes prevention and self-care.
  • Attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition rather than focusing solely on the symptomatic treatment.
  • Blends centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in medicine, covering all aspects of health from prenatal to geriatric care.
