“There is a beauty, truth and wisdom to Naturopathic Medicine that bestows it’s virtues throughout nature and within the human existence” Dis-ease is the body’s way of expressing to us that something is out of balance in our lives. Naturopathic treatment helps to restore that balance without being invasive or creating more symptoms unnecessarily.
A naturopath is trained to seek the underlying cause of a disease rather than suppressing a patients symptoms. Every dis-ease presents symptoms which can be viewed as expressions of imbalance manifesting from a physical, mental and/or emotional level. The primary focus is to treat the root cause and promote health.
Naturopaths stand by core principles that help to educate and treat the individual as a whole and will consult to apply knowledge in areas of stress management, diet modification, lifestyle factors, exercise, environmental influences and a detailed patient history in order to put together a treatment plan that empowers the individual.
"We don't treat disease, we treat people who suffer from diseases."
