Naturopathic medicine is a system of healthcare that aims to identify and treat the cause of disease using the most natural and non-invasive therapies appropriate for the condition.
Naturopathic medicine is a vitalist medicine, meaning physicians believe that each of us has the capacity to heal ourselves. The naturopathic physician thus aims to identify obstacles to the self-healing process and correct them, thus allowing health to be restored.
Naturopathic physicians use the least invasive, most natural treatments, customized for each patient. Since each person is unique, and will have individualized responses to the stressors that cause a disease process, the treatments for each condition will also be individualized. In some cases, conventional medicines like antibiotics may also be utilized if deemed appropriate.
