See diseases and conditions treated by Naturopathic Medicine to get more information about your specific health concerns.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Promoting wellness and prevention, naturopathic medicine stimulates the healing power of the body and treats the underlying cause of disease.
Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body.
Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
Treating both acute and chronic conditions, Dr. Eleveld, Dr. Duncan and Dr. Gasinski of Natural Choice Medical Clinic in Guelph, choose naturopathic treatments based on the individual patient – his or her physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors.
In addition to assessing diet and lifestyle, natural therapies (including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture), may also be used during treatments. Therapies can be used on their own or in conjunction with conventional medical treatments.
