Naturopathic medicine is a distinct health care system that blends
modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is the art and science of disease management and prevention using natural and alternative therapies.
A Naturopathic Doctor views the individual as an integral whole, made up of
physiological, structural, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects, and influenced by environmental and lifestyle factors. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning in one or more of these areas.
