Naturopathic medicine seeks to maintain, improve, and/or restore health by enhancing the healing power of the body, mind, and spirit. Naturopathic health care promotes healthy living and aims to be preventative as well as restorative.
Naturopaths believe that dealing with the underlying cause (not just the symptoms) of ill health will allow the body to revert to a higher state of wellness and help prevent future dis-ease.
Naturopathic medicine understands that two people with similar health conditions may need to be handled very differently. Each patient is studied as a whole body system, not as a heart, or a pair of kidneys, or as a disease. By studying YOUR unique health history and unique physical expression of imbalance, a plan, workable for YOU is developed to bring you to maximized health.
Hippocrates said "Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food!"
By studying your symptoms, eating habits, health history, the Naturopath aims to uncover any necessary nutritional substances that are lacking, and causing a reduction in optimal health. The Naturopath will also aim to increase overall health so the body is able to absorb and use the nutrition it is already receiving.
Plants have been used since ancient times for their medicinal properties and ability to benefit us. Herbs can help nourish and balance the body and promote health; they tend to act gently on the body instead of overriding bodily processes--herbs actually help to modify the body's natural processes to achieve better health.
Dr. Bernard Jensen said, "The body will heal itself, if given the chance!" Using a variety of assessment tools, nutritional programs, and alternative therapies which rebuild and repair the body's organs, glands, cells and tissues, the body receives deep levels of healing--giving increased quality of life.

"The Doctor of the Future will give little medicine,
but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame,
diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."
