Natural therapies have been effectively used to treat diseases since ancient times.  The earliest doctors and healers worked with herbs, foods, water, fasting and tissue manipulation – gentle treatments that do not obscure the body’s own healing powers.  Today’s naturopathic doctors combine the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science.  Modern naturopathic doctors conduct and make practical use of the latest biochemical research involving nutrition, medicinal plants, homeopathy and other natural treatments.  While steeped in traditional healing methods, principles, and practices, contemporary naturopathic medicine focuses on prevention of disease and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment.  Naturopathic doctors help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.

Naturopathic therapies are appropriate for a variety of medical conditions including chronic fatigue syndrome, immune deficiency, fibromyalgia, digestive issues, allergies, natural hormone replacement, fertility problems, weight management, ADHD, autism, and many acute ailments.  Naturopathic treatments and treatments used by conventionally trained medical doctors can complement each other in many ways, including conjunctive approaches to cancer.
