Naturopathy

Naturopathic medicine plays an important role in integrative health care, and treatments can be used on their own or together with conventional medicine. Naturopathic care is not covered by OHIP, although many extended health benefits do provide naturopathic coverage.

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a unique and valuable health care system.
It combines standard medical diagnostics and knowledge with traditional, natural, gentle therapies to support long-lasting, whole body-mind wellness.

With a whole body-mind approach, the on-going goal is to understand each person’s life/health story and address the underlying cause of each health concern.

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are primary healthcare providers who treat the whole person and consider the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects that contribute to health and well-being.
NDs support that “innate” healing ability of the body and address the underlying cause of symptoms in order to restore, improve, maintain health.
