Naturopathic Medicine is a unique type of primary care that blends natural healing practices with scientific advances and current research. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) educate their patients on the importance of diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and may incorporate supportive therapies to enhance the body's ability to prevent or heal disease. Patients are treated with a blend of modern medical science and traditional natural medicine to not only treat disease, but to also restore health.
