NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

Naturopathic medicine prevailed in all cultures before pharmaceutical medications and was practiced as “regular” medicine before the establishment of the American Medical Association in the early 1900s. Naturopathic Medicine has evolved into holistic primary care medicine as is taught by accredited naturopathic medical schools.

Naturopathic medical therapies include nutritional counseling, herbal medicine, expert advice on nutritional supplements, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, and counseling. In some states of the US, Naturopathic doctors (NDs) can prescribe pharmaceutical drugs as is consistent with their training in general primary care medicine and do so judiciously. In states where NDs do not have prescriptive rights, they collaborate with their conventional medical colleagues and use natural therapies with highly effective results. When nutritional supplements and herbs are recommended and supplied by a licensed Naturopathic Physician, there is no risk of harmful side-effects and you are getting an individualized treatment plan specific for your needs and biochemistry. Naturopathic medical advice can help you wean off some medications, reduce your dependence on others, and never need to take many more. Naturopathic medicine also helps to reduce the side-effects of many pharmaceutical drugs when they are necessary.

Naturopathic medicine also provides help for people who do not feel well and are told “there is nothing wrong with you” in conventional medicine because it can address medical problems before they become a pathology that can be seen on conventional diagnostic methods, such as, lab results. Naturopathic medicine is the best form of preventative medicine and allows you to treat your body with the respect and support it needs to be healthy.
