Naturopathic physicians integrate the wisdom of nature with modern medical science to find the root cause of disease and to stimulate the body’s inherent healing processes. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are trained to discover the unique building blocks each individual needs to aid in this process using the 6 Naturopathic principles. Diet, lifestyle changes, exercise, botanical medicine, supplements, and other cutting edge therapies are the tools ND’s employ. Naturopathic physicians may also use pharmaceutical drugs when necessary. Naturopathic treatments may include the following practices and modalities: clinical and laboratory testing, nutritional and botanical medicines, dietary recommendations, homeopathy, intravenous and injection therapies, lifestyle changes and various forms of counseling. Naturopathic doctors promote wellness using the safest, most effective and least invasive therapies available.
