Good health is our most precious asset

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.

Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.

In Canada, the naturopathic medical profession’s infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.

Text Box: Your health is precious, we can help you take good care of it!

In the midst of all the stress associated with work, school and the busy North American lifestyle, we cannot forget to take care of our most precious asset – our health. One of our primary duties is to remember to go for regular health checkups. A regular exercise regimen, along with a proper diet is the foundation to maintaining a strong and healthy immune system capable of fighting off infections, environmental stress, and protecting ourselves from preventable diseases.

Many of us take our health for granted until someone close to us falls ill. Failing to take care of our physical and mental health in the present can lead to irreparable damage in the future. We put in a great deal of effort into protecting our financial assets, so why not our health.
