What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that uses evidence based medicine alongside traditional and natural forms of medicine. Fundamentally it subsumes that the body when supported and provided adequate resources has the ability to heal itself. Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention using natural therapies including: botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, lifestyle counselling and health promotion and disease prevention.
