Why Naturopathic Medicine?
What sets Naturopathic Medicine apart
Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
This modality encompasses tongue and pulse diagnosis, acupuncture, and herbal medicine.
Using plants and flowers to help the body heal. Many common pharmaceuticals are synthetic versions of botanical compounds that were used for 1000s of years.
Like cures like. That is the basis of homoeopathy. Homeopathy is useful for both acute and chronic conditions.
What we eat has great impacts on the body and it's not just about weight. Nutrition optimization and nutraceutical supplementing is a major area of practice for NDs.
Hydrotherapy & Massage
Hydrotherapy is the process of using water to heal and benefit the body. Bathing, changing temperatures and specific techniques have been used for 100s of years to help with all types of complaints.
While many other professions exist to exclusively deal with physical medicine, ND students are trained in orthopaedic assessments and manipulations.
