WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE?
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to support the body’s innate ability to restore health and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits.This is a medical approach that emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
Treating both acute and chronic conditions, treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental and lifestyle factors. In addition to nutrition and lifestyle changes, therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy,, pain injections, and intravenous therapy, may also be integrated into a treatment plan..
In Canada, the naturopathic medical profession’s infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, standardized examinations, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.
