What’s Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a unique primary health system that combines both modern scientific medicine with all natural forms of medicines. Based on the power of nature to heal it is supportive of the body’s ability to heal itself from within. In Naturopathic medicine, there is an art of diagnosing the condition and treating and preventing other conditions all at the same time via the use of all natural therapies such as botanical medicines, nutrition, clinical, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulations, clinical, traditional Chinese medicines including acupuncture, lifestyle changes and counseling as well as health promotions and disease prevention techniques.

How Is Naturopathic Medicine In Comparison To Conventional Medicine?

While both naturopaths and doctors are licensed to provide medical care, the naturopath will rely on more non-traditional methods of medicines including all natural forms of medicine and treatments. Patients will be treated individually and their physical, as well as environmental and lifestyle, will all be looked at closely during an exam. The naturopath will examine their health changes and their emotions as well., This allows the naturopath to individualize treatment and give the person more specialized care. Doctors will approach the patient from a more clinical standpoint and rely on pharmaceuticals for treatment.

What Can Naturopathy Do For You?

Naturopathic medicine will treat any forms of health concerns. Whether it be pediatric or geriatric or anything in between the naturopath is there to help treat symptoms that are irritating as well as more chronic illnesses including psychological as well as physical.

Naturopathy can improve the quality of life and give relief to those who are struggling with serious or lifelong illnesses that are potentially life-threatening including treatment protocols and medications. It can help patients to address their conditions without the intervention of pharmaceuticals that may have even more potentially serious side effects on a person’s body and mind.

Many patients seek to combine the pharmaceutical route with a naturopathy route as a goal of minimizing the side effects of pharmaceutical medications and surgical procedures.
