  • What is Naturopathic Medicine and How Does it Differ From Conventional Medicine?
    Naturopathic medicine is a distinct, regulated, primary health care profession in Ontario. Licensed Naturopathic Doctors emphasize an integrative and comprehensive approach to health optimization using nutrition, nutritional supplementation, botanical herbs, Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, homeopathy, and lifestyle counselling. Most treatments are evidence-based and determined by clinical experience, research and the individual patient's unique health situation. Naturopathic Doctors typically spend up to 90-minutes for an initial assessment with a patient. The goal of this appointment is to collect as much clinical information as possible and identify connections between symptoms that reflect an underlying deficiency, imbalance or concern that needs to be addressed. Like conventional doctors, Naturopathic Doctors rely on conventional testing and diagnostic imaging to help determine and confirm these deficiencies, imbalances and concerns. Using a functional approach to test analysis, Naturopathic Doctors focus on optimal lab values rather than simply looking for normal values. Many Naturopathic Doctors work with integratively with Medical Doctors and other Health Care Providers to provide their patients with the best quality of care.
