is based on the healing power of nature and our body’s innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) focus on treating the whole person, not just their symptoms or condition, in order to optimize health and prevent disease. While naturopathic doctors are trained as primary care physicians, it is the goal to utilize the lowest level of therapeutic intervention needed, starting with diet and lifestyle counseling and progressing to natural substances, (i.e. botanical remedies, homeopathy and nutritional supplements). These can then be integrated with more traditional medicine therapeutics such as pharmaceutical medications and surgery when necessary.
