What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Well Naturopathic Medicine is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes a holistic approach, examining areas of the mind, body and soul to effectively investigate the root cause of disease. Finding the root cause of disease (Tolle Causam) is important because it addresses the factors that determine our health: our water, our light, our nutrition, our movement (flexibility and exercise), our genes, our environment and etc. When we are removed from equilibrium or homeostasis, whatever you choose to call it, imbalances in the body occur. These imbalances are called disease and the result of the disease process, symptoms. It is up to us healers of Naturopathic medicine and most importantly, the WILL of the patient to correct these underlying imbalances and move to a state of health. Our treatments consist of us correcting these underlying imbalances focusing on proper nutrition, exercises and etc as well as integrating many different techniques that are less invasive and non-toxic: botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, structural alignment-soft tissue manipulation, PT modalities and many many more. Additionally, we are not just doctors we are also teachers (docere) striving to educate our patients, the public and to continue to educate ourselves.
