What is Natural Medicine?

Healing takes place on many levels. Naturopathic medicine recognizes this and works with the individual to encourage their health and vitality. The body has an innate wisdom and ability to heal itself when given the proper environment. Naturopathic medicine utilizes natural therapies to create a vital environment and focuses on addressing the source of imbalance, or the cause, rather than just treating symptoms.

Modalities utilized in an individual patient’s treatment plan may include nutrition, nutrients on the cellular level, the therapeutic properties of botanicals, alignment of physical systems, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, counseling, exercise, lifestyle changes and developing positive attitudes which increase wellness and enhance one’s ability to deal with stress.
