Naturopathic Physicians (ND’s) are board certified and licensed doctors specializing in Natural Medicine. ND’s combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Steeped in traditional healing methods, ideology and practices, naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention as well as comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. Naturopathic Physicians are able to minimize risk of harm by using safe but effective protocols that help facilitate the inherent ability of the body to heal itself. Through the use of botanical (herbal) medicine, homeopathy, therapeutic nutrition, and lifestyle modification, ND’s are able to identify and remove barriers to good health by creating a healthy internal and external environment.
