What is naturopathic Medicine?
"Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that concentrates on whole-patient wellness while emphasizing prevention and the process of self-healing through the use of natural therapies. Rather than focusing solely on treating the symptoms, naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient’s condition. They provide individualized evidence-informed therapies that balance the least harmful and most effective approaches to help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health."
