What is a Naturopathic Doctor:
A naturopathic doctor completes 4 yrs of college graduate level courses which grooms in the training of being a primary care medical doctor but with a holistic approach. Naturopathic doctors understand/ believes that the body has the innate ability to select for self healing (optimal health), if given the conditions for health.
Naturopathic doctors are guided by 6 principles:
The first 2 are "do no harm" and "support the healing power of nature". Naturopathic doctors use the least force of intervention to respect the innate healing forces.
The third principle "treat the whole person". Naturopathic doctors spend time addressing the physical, mental, emotional, genetic, social, spiritual and envirnomental factors that affect wellbeing. This leads to the fourth principle "identify and treat the cause". Naturopathic doctors gather and analyze the information to get to the root cause of the disease and to better design an individualized recommendation plan. But naturopathic doctors like to take time to teach on what the disease process is and how the different therapies can improve health, which is the fifth principle "doctor as teacher".
Last but not least, the sixth principle "focus on prevention. Naturopathic doctors advocate for creating the conditions for optimal heath before the disease process manifest or becomes chronic.
What is naturopathic medicine:
Naturopathic medicine is using evidenced based and eclectic researched natural therapies such as diet/lifestyle, herbal supplements, nutritional supplements and homeopathy (to name a few) to support the innate (self) healing process.
