What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease using natural therapies that support the body’s ability to heal. It focuses on optimizing health and well-being through individualized patient care and public education.
In plainer terms, naturopathic medicine is the drug-free, non-invasive, and all-encompassing approach to disease and other ailments. With the increasing positive research on natural healing methods and the high levels of success naturopathic medicine has so far achieved, more than ever people are turning to alternative health care practices in order to facilitate and maintain complete well-being.
These effective treatments can help you go beyond conventional medical processes so that you may discover and remedy the source of your problems rather than simply alleviate the symptoms. This is the goal of a naturopathic doctor in order to assist your body in naturally rediscovering its ability to heal properly.
Naturopathic doctors can diagnose and treat almost all acute and chronic conditions. Some of the more common ailments include digestive problems, IBS, allergies and food sensitivities, arthritis, skin conditions, fibromyalgia, colds and flu, headaches, women’s conditions such as PMS, menopausal problems, endometriosis and uterine fibroids, men’s stress, insomnia, and ADHD. Enhancing and maintaining optimal health during pregnancy is also a concern of NDs.
NDs must complete 3 years of pre-med university education, followed by a comprehensive 4-year naturopathic medical program at a recognized naturopathic college. The program incorporates basic medical sciences, clinical sciences, naturopathic therapies, and 1500 hours of supervised clinical experience.
