Naturopathy
Naturopathic Medicine is a branch of healing that combines centuries of old natural therapies with the current understanding of health and human systems. It encompasses all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care, and emphasizes prevention and self-care.

Licensed Naturopathic Doctors attain a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine after attending a four year medical school that closely resembles the training of MDs and DOs.

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) embrace six major philosophies, the three that best summarize the foundation of the profession are Vis Medicatrix Naturae (healing power of nature), Primum Nocere (first do no harm) and Tolle Causum (remove the cause of disease). This refers to their belief of using the healing power of nature and the least invasive methods to treat the cause rather than just symptoms of disease. Naturopathic Medicine focuses on supporting the body’s innate ability to heal itself with supplementation of herbs, diet and nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy and lifestyle management.
