About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a unique primary health care system that facilitates wellness and prevention of illness or disease. It blends ancient traditional medicine with modern scientific research. The philosophy is to treat the underlying cause of illness or disease, starting with nature and the innate healing power of the body. Symptoms and health concerns, large or small, are warning signals of dis-ease within the body and unfavourable lifestyle habits. The comprehensive and individualized approach of Naturopathic Medicine helps to achieve optimal health and well-being.
