What Is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care system that combines current scientific medical knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine to treat the underlying cause of illnesses. Naturopathic doctors use a wide variety of treatment modalities, including clinical nutrition, acupuncture, botanical medicine, injection and intravenous therapies and prescription medication, which allows naturopathic doctors to be flexible when designing a treatment plan that best suits each individual patient.
