What does a naturopathic doctor do?

Recognizing the body’s natural ability to establish and maintain health, naturopathic doctors understand that if someone is experiencing less than optimal well-being there must be an underlying obstacle interfering with your body’s capacity to restore health.  Our job is to identify and help you remove this obstacle while providing the body with what it needs to return itself to a healthy state.  Some of the therapeutics utilized to support this process include: homeopathy, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, botanical medicine, nutritional and detoxification support, and physical medicine.

Naturopathic doctors see the interconnectedness of all body systems and therefore strive to treat you as a whole person.  We view the symptoms you’re experiencing as your body's signal of an often deeper issue.  Rather than focusing solely on your current diagnosis or symptoms, we take the required amount of time to assess your physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental concerns, past and present, to understand what makes you unique and figure out why a certain condition may have manifested in you.  This meticulous and individualized approach helps you to achieve not only current symptomatic relief, but by healing at your deepest level, also decreases your susceptibility to future illnesses. 

When practicing in accordance with the naturopathic model, the only consistent similarity we see among our patients is that everyone has this ability to heal themselves.  Aside from that, we view each patient as completely individual; requiring a therapeutic protocol designed specifically for their unique make-up and requirements.
