What is a Naturopathic Doctor?

Naturopathic doctors are highly trained primary health care practitioners who endeavour to identify and remove obstacles to healing and facilitate and support the body's natural ability to heal. Naturopathic doctors use gentle, scientifically-based natural therapies including: Clinical Nutrition, Lifestyle Counselling, Botanical Medicine, Homeopathic Medicine, Acupuncture  (Traditional Chinese Medicine), and Physical Medicine. They work in partnership with other health care providers to ensure that patients receive the most comprehensive and effective care possible.
