Naturopathic Medicine uses different therapies, or modalities, to treat the whole person. We have various "tools in our toolbox" to address different concerns such as: homeopathy, nutritional counseling, botanical medicine, hydrotherapy and much more. So if you need alternative options for treatment, Naturopathic medicine can provide that.
People that have a history of chronic conditions may need some additional support. Naturopathic treatments are great for adjunctive care to help improve or slow the progression of certain disease processes.
Oftentimes, a number of symptoms are interconnected and they point to an imbalance or deficiency in an organ system. Naturopaths seek to address those large, root issues to your concerns.
