Naturopathic medicine is both an art and a science. It is comprised of evidence-based medicine derived from modern research as well as traditional remedies and methods that have been used for over 5000 years! Naturopathic medicine involves using many different healing modalities to treat patients.
Naturopathic Doctors (ND) use nutrition, lifestyle changes, supplements (vitamins), botanical formulas, and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture.
Other tools such as hydrotherapy, homeopathy, and physical medicine like massage, therapeutic exercises, and manipulation, can also be used to treat the patient. NDs tailor each mode of therapy to the needs of the individual patient to support and promote the natural healing of the body.
How is Naturopathic Treatment Different Than Others?
Our Naturopathic Doctor located in Woodbridge, Vaughan is a primary care provider of naturopathy who diagnoses patients the same way a conventional doctor would - the difference is how they approach the treatment of the patient. Naturopathic Medicine doctors choose methods that allow for the body to naturally heal itself - methods that support the body's functions and nourish it.
Naturopathic doctors focus their practice on the prevention of disease.
Prevention is one of the six guiding principles and goals for a patient as prevention is always better than cure. Prevention is a very important goal for Naturopathic Doctors as many of the diseases affecting people today are lifestyle-related and can be preventable. Many patients get diagnosed with diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc - in most instances, these diseases and their complications can be avoided by guiding patients on managing their stress, nutrition, and exercise.
Naturopathic medicine does not only treat lifestyle diseases. Naturopathic doctors can treat diseases such as autoimmune diseases and cancer. Naturopathic doctors are trained to help with the relief or improvement of symptoms that these diseases bring on, as well as treating the cause of the disease itself.
