Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is based on the healing power of nature and it supports and stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself.
Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of natural medicine focusing on the body's vital ability to heal itself. As primary health care providers, Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) focus on disease prevention, patient education, health maintenance, diagnosis of diseases, and treat illnesses with the aid of non-invasive natural therapies. Naturopathic treatment can complement conventional treatment or be used effectively on its own.
