Naturopathic Medicine is a unique and distinct system of health care that emphasizes the use of prevention and natural therapeutics. Naturopathic Doctors (ND’s) are trained to serve as primary care general practitioners who are experts in the prevention, diagnosis, management, and treatment of both acute and chronic health conditions.

Naturopathic doctors use a variety of natural and non-invasive therapies, including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, physical medicine, and counseling.

Naturopathic treatments are effective in treating a wide variety of conditions without the need for additional intervention, although we will prescribe prescription medication when needed. Naturopathic doctors are also able to function within an integrated framework, and naturopathic therapies can be used to complement treatments used by conventionally trained medical doctors. The result is a patient-centered approach that strives to provide the most appropriate treatment for an individual’s needs.
