Naturopathic medicine is a comprehensive system of primary healthcare that applies the most relevant aspects of a variety of healthcare systems to a patient's case with great effectiveness.
Diagnosis is made by taking a thorough history which considers the patterns of symptoms in a patient. Physical, mental and emotional factors and all body systems are taken into account. Relevant physical exam, potential lab testing (such as hormone testing, food allergy testing, full laboratory bloodwork) and eastern methods of diagnosis such as Tongue and Pulse diagnosis and Applied Kinesiology are also used to assess the patient.
Treatment involves using the most applicable therapy for the individual patient to address the root causes and create harmony. Naturopathic Doctors support and stimulate the body’s inherent ability to heal.
