Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a system of medicine based on the belief that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. The goal of naturopathy is to correct the internal environment, eliminate obstacles to a cure, and stimulate the individual's healing force to restore health. Modern natural medicine is a combination of traditional medicinal wisdom and science-based clinical evidence. Naturopathic treatments include nutrition, herbal medicine, physical medicine, body-mind therapies, therapeutic diets, nutrient supplementation, homeopathy and hydrotherapy. NDs (naturopathic doctors) can also order diagnostic tests and prescribe many conventional medications, and will use them when appropriate.
