Naturopathic medicine is a unique primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Naturopathic medicine focuses on stimulating the body's own innate healing ability through the use of natural medicine to enable optimal health. As per our philosophy, naturopathic medicine treats the underlying cause of the disease rather than focusing only on the symptoms.
Naturopathic physicians have a minimum of 7 years of post-secondary education, including a bachelor's degree followed by 4 years at an accredited naturopathic medical school (for which there are only 2 such schools in Canada). Naturopathic doctors can treat and prevent many illnesses, from the common cold to severe chronic disease.
