What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Have you ever wondered what is naturopathic medicine? It is an alternative form of health care. It focuses on achieving a state of overall well-being by identifying and removing anything that might stand in the way of your optimal health.
In Ontario, the field of naturopathic medicine is regulated by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario.
Naturopathic medicine is a very large and diverse field, but there are a few tenets which every naturopathic doctor practices which you will experience at any naturopathic clinic.
First Do No Harm
Naturopathic doctors use the least harmful means of healing available. This means that our naturopathic doctors will always give you the most gentle, least invasive care possible.
The Healing Power of Nature
The methods naturopathic doctors use are based on boosting the strength of your body’s own system of healing. When your body is in the right position to take care of itself, you can easily achieve optimal health!
Doctor as Teacher
Your health is, after all, your health. Who knows your body better than you do? We will teach you what you need to know to take control of your own health, empowering you with the tools necessary to live the healthiest lifestyle possible!
Treat the Cause
Naturopathy uses symptoms as signs to help you find out what’s going on at a deeper level. Rather than simply treating the symptom, Dr. Nardini, ND will help you find out what’s causing the symptom in the first place to help get rid of it for good!
Treat The Whole Person
Our naturopathic doctors understands that your health issues aren’t always limited to the physical world. That’s why they addresses any mental, emotional, and spiritual concerns that you may have as well. Your optimum health on every level can be achieved!
