Naturopathic medicine’s main focus is to identify & treat the cause of disease, not suppress symptoms that provide valuable information about how your system is responding & functioning. Conventional medicine falls short in their philosophy of suppressing your symptoms with pharmaceutical drugs without really ever addressing the cause of disease in most cases. Naturopathic medicine also emphases the importance of your foundations of health, such as nutrition, hydration, sleep, exercise, stress management, etc.
Naturopathic Medicine utilizes natural modalities such as nutrition, herbal medicine, nutrient therapy, stress reduction techniques, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, mind body medicine techniques, & physical medicine techniques. Naturopathic Doctors, just like MDs, can specialize in a particular body system or disease, i.e. Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Allergies, Parkinson’s disease, etc.
