Naturopathic medicine treats health conditions by utilizing the body's inherent ability to heal. There is a concentration on whole-patient wellness through the integration of mind, body, and spirit. The medicine is tailored to the patient and emphasizes prevention and self-care. Naturopathic medicine attempts to find the underlying cause of the patient's condition rather than focusing solely on symptomatic treatment.
Naturopathic physicians practice comprehensive general medicine and treat a wide variety of acute and chronic illnesses. The foundation of naturopathic diagnosis is a detailed patient history, physical examination, review of medications, and evaluation of appropriate laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging.
