Naturopathic and Functional Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a unique system of health care that utilizes natural therapies for the prevention and the self-healing process. Naturopathic Doctors, known as NDs, practice based on centuries-old knowledge combined with the most current and cutting edge evidence-based medicine. Their philosophy includes the concept that nature is the most effective healer and the body has the innate ability to heal itself.

When diagnosing medical concerns, NDs focus on identifying the underlying causes of disease, while naturopathic therapies are supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals from multiple disciplines, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, clinical nutrition, European complementary medicine, homeopathy, phytotherapy, psychology, pharmacognosy, and spirituality.

The healing and prevention techniques used in naturopathic medicine can include clinical nutrition, physical manipulation, botanical medicine or supplements, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and homeopathy just to name a few, by integrating conventional, scientific and empirical methodology with the ancient laws of nature.

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of a disease and takes the whole person into account (not just an isolated system or set of systems as in traditional medicine). It uses a systems-oriented approach which engages both the patient and the practitioner in a therapeutic partnership.
