Naturopathic medicine is a blend of science and traditional/natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than a diagnosis. Treatment is drawn from a number of modalities such as Orthomolecular/Holistic nutrition, Botanical medicine, Counseling, and Traditional Chinese medicine/Acupuncture.
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) focus on disease prevention and improving a patient’s overall health. They are trained to provide collaborative care and work with other health care professionals. Naturopathic doctors will commonly receive referrals for acupuncture to treat infertility or migraines, nutritional therapy for high cholesterol or irritable bowel syndrome, and herbal and lifestyle therapies for chronic stress, allergies and asthma. NDs will also receive referrals for patients who have unresponsive chronic and complicated conditions.
Many work benefit plans cover your visits and lab testing with your Naturopathic Doctor, and a referral is not necessary to see an ND.
