What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine - also called naturopathy - is based on the belief that the body can heal itself naturally with guided treatment. People turn to naturopathic medicine to improve health, prevent disease and treat illnesses naturally. Naturopathic physicians - also called naturopaths - are able to diagnose, treat and manage patients with acute and chronic conditions. This field of medicine concentrates on disease prevention and diagnosis while also attempting to find and treat the underlying cause of a condition.

It's important to note that Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine (ND) are licensed primary care physicians who care for patients of all ages. They provide individualized, evidence-based therapies that balance the least harmful and most effective approaches to help facilitate the body's ability to restore and maintain optimal health. Naturopaths believe in natural therapies, and they generally avoid prescribing medications or performing invasive procedures. A properly trained naturopathic physician works with other health professionals and refers people to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.

How Does Naturopathic Medicine Work?

Naturopathic diagnosis focuses on identifying the underlying cause of disease rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment. Naturopaths can perform examinations and order diagnostic tests similar to the way a general practitioner does. He or she will also spend time interviewing patients about their diet, exercise, habits, sleep and emotional state to determine how these factors affect health. The practice of naturopathic medicine emerges from the following six principles of healing:

  • The healing power of nature: Naturopathic strategies work to support the body's own innate healing mechanisms.
  • Identify and treat the cause: Naturopathy works to alter disease processes and decrease the risk of the original symptoms.
  • First do no harm: The physician will always use the least invasive and least harmful treatment in a given situation.
  • Treat the whole person: Naturopaths consider all aspects of an individual, not just individual symptoms.
  • The physician as teacher: Naturopathic physicians play an important role when it comes to increasing the prevalence of preventable chronic diseases.
  • Prevention: By assessing risk factors such as heredity and susceptibility to disease, naturopaths help patients prevent illness.

What is the Benefit of Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is perfectly suited to treat and manage many common health conditions. Typically, the symptoms patients experience are often an indication of an imbalance elsewhere in the body. Experienced naturopathic doctors are trained to investigate and identify where an imbalance is occurring and determine whether there is one root cause for the symptoms a patient is experiencing.

By eliminating or minimizing the need for prescription medications and addressing nutritional or biological imbalances, patients report a greater overall sense of well-being, increased energy, enhanced mood and better sleep. Naturopathic doctors also give patients the ability the alleviate many of the day-to-day issues everyone faces, such as how to:

  • Relieve pain
  • Avoid chronic illnesses
  • Increase energy
  • Reduce stress
  • Recover quickly
