Naturopathic medicine (or naturopathy) is a form of primary healthcare that uses natural therapies to promote health and treat disease. As primary healthcare providers, naturopathic doctors are trained in physical and laboratory diagnostics, and in providing first-contact health services.
Integrate Healthcare Collective’s naturopathic doctors look at each person as an integrative whole. They do not view you as a set of physical symptoms or as a disease, but instead consider your mental, emotional, social and environmental aspects to see how each affects your health.
Patient education is vital to naturopathic practice because we want our patients to understand and take an active role in their health. Patient education is also a key to prevention. Using simple, manageable steps, naturopathic doctors can help to reduce the risk of future illness and injuries without further adding to the stress of everyday life.
