NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

Naturopathic medicine is a science-based approach which empowers patients to work alongside their helathcare providers to achieve optimal health. It is centered on individualized patient care and focused on the promotion of wellness and the prevention of disease by supporting the "Vital Force" of the body and its natural capacity to heal and self-repair. 

Naturopathic medicine aims to identify and eliminate the root cause of symptoms before diseases develop. It helps the body to heal, maintain and optimize itself. It reinforces the immune system by supporting the natural factors that improve health: diet, exercise, rest, sun, fresh air and emotional equilibrium.
 
Naturopathic medicine relies first on natural treatments and techniques such as botanicals, vitamins & minerals, homeopathy, aromatherapy, gemmotherapy, traditional chinese medicine as well as mind-body techniques and also on allopathic treatments if needed.
THE FOUR STAGES OF DISEASE DEVELOPMENT
  1. Micro-cellular changes which are very difficult to detect.
  2. Minor structural changes that are barely detectable.
  3. Physiological changes begin to occur but specific symptoms are not yet present.
  4. Changes causing specific symptoms which are easily diagnosed.
