What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct and regulated system of healthcare that emphasizes addressing the underlying cause/s of illness while promoting improvements in lifestyle, nutrition, and the use of natural therapies. Other tenants include encouraging patient empowerment and appreciation for the relationship between the organ systems. Naturopathic medicine works with the body to heal, not just cover up symptoms. While Naturopathic Medicine’s first goal is to provide a pathway to healing from disease, the aim is ultimately to elevate energy, vitality, and life. Naturopathic Medicine is one of the oldest continuously licensed health care professions in the U.S.
