What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic medical practice based on scientific research that emphasizes wellness promotion and patient education. The Naturopathic Doctors at our Ottawa clinics look to treat their clients as a whole person – and not just treat a disease or disorder in isolation. They believe that the key to good health lies in treating all aspects of a person's situation.

The Ottawa team of Naturopaths have expert knowledge of the human body's systems, health issues and disease. They combine knowledge of ancient principles with the latest of cutting edge advances and conventional treatments too. Your treatment will be customized to your situation.

Many people choose Naturopathic Doctors as their primary healthcare givers due to their holistic approach to medical practice. Naturopathic Doctors can treat virtually any of the common conditions that a typical family doctor would treat, including,

• Common aches and pains to muscles and joints
• Headaches

These may be related to other contributing factors that are involved in Naturopathic treatment, such as,

• Emotional issues such as anxiety, depression and insomnia
• Digestive issues
• Allergies
• And many more
