Naturopathic medicine is a system of primary health care that integrates current, evidence-based science and traditional philosophy into a unique form of treatment using natural therapies. Disease is often a symptom of an overwhelmed body trying to heal itself. We always seek to treat the underlying disease using natural, minimally interfering methods without simply masking symptoms.
