Calgary Naturopathic Medicine Services
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct health care system that integrates modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Naturopathic doctors work to stimulate the body’s inherent healing processes and to treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals that indicate imbalances or dysfunction in the body.
Because everyone has a unique health background, naturopathic treatment for the same condition may vary between individuals, depending on exactly what is needed to support their body.
Naturopathic treatment may include:
- Clinical nutrition
- Botanical medicine
- Nutritional supplementation
- Lifestyle counselling
- Acupuncture & Eastern medicine
- Hands-on treatments such as naturopathic manipulation
- Homeopathic medicine
- Laboratory testing (blood tests, hormone tests, food sensitivity tests, etc)
Phoenix Client Testimonial
Guiding Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
Disease prevention and health promotion:
- Naturopathic Doctors assess risk factors and hereditary susceptibility to disease and make appropriate interventions to prevent illness.
- Health is more than just the absence of disease; health entails daily functioning on the highest possible levels, and is obtained by proper nutrition, exercise, a balanced lifestyle, positive emotions, thoughts and actions.
Treat the whole person:
NDs take into account not only your physical symptoms but also mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, spiritual and other factors.
Doctor as teacher:
NDs aim to help patients to understand the factors that affect their health and help them balance and become more capable of maintaining their own health.
Treat the cause:
The primary goal of a naturopathic doctor is to determine and treat the underlying cause rather than simply managing or suppressing their symptoms.
The healing power of nature:
NDs work to restore and support the powerful and inherent healing ability of the body, mind and spirit and to prevent further disease from occurring.
Do no harm:
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) aim to use effective treatment methods that minimize the risk of harmful side effects, and they avoid harmful suppression of symptoms.
