Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine, also called “naturopathy” is a system of health care – an art, science, philosophy and practice of medicine that follows principles found in nature. These principles are based upon the observation and experience of the natural environment, the human organism, and the relationship between the two. Therapies to support good health and prevent illness are continually reexamined in the light of scientific advances. In addition, traditional, folk and indigenous healing knowledge passed down over time is greatly respected and used with enthusiasm.

Through good nutrition, periodic fasts or detoxification, exercise, sound sleep and quiet time, one most easily enjoys good health with more ease. But sometimes, more is needed.

Laboratory tests for example, used to investigate hormonal imbalances, neurotransmitter and amino acid levels and food allergies can be very helpful in providing more information.   Individualized nutritional, botanical, and lifestyle recommendations are made, tailored to the person, season, genetics, and condition he or she is seeking to have help with.
