The term naturopathic medicine refers to a distinct system of primary health care that uses natural methods and substances to support and stimulate the body's inherent self healing processes.
A naturopath doctor views individuals as an integral whole where symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body and unfavorable lifestyle habits. The primary goal of care is to treat the underlying cause of the disease.
Naturopath doctors can also complement and enhance health care services provided by other health professionals. They provide clients with a truly integrative form of health care.
Naturopaths do not use prescription drugs or surgery. They are extensively trained in the application of natural substances and conservative therapies to support and stimulate healing.
Most private insurance plans cover naturopathic treatments. Be sure to check your particular plan for details.
