Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances which encourage the person's inherent self -healing process. This means that we are primary care doctors that approach health differently and use natural therapeutics
EVALUATE THE WHOLE PERSON
You are more than just your symptoms. You are more than your disease. You are a person with a unique personality, biochemistry, and genetics, all of which are important when it comes to health. Naturopathic doctors evaluate you as a whole person so that we can figure out the real problem and determine what you really need to heal.
TREAT THE PERSON, NOT THE SYMPTOMS
Naturopathic doctors look beyond the symptoms so that we can focus on health. Symptoms are often just your body's way of telling you something is wrong but they are not the real problem. Symptoms are the fire alarm, not the fire. They tell us that there is a fire, but not where it is, how big it is, and what started it. Our mission is to find the fire, put it out, and learn what started it so we can prevent future fires. To do that, we take a whole health, whole person approach.
