Naturopathic medicine is the treatment and prevention of diseases by natural means. Naturopathic Doctors assess the whole person, taking into consideration physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the individual. Gentle, non-invasive techniques are generally used in order to stimulate the body’s inherent healing capacity. Your Naturopathic Doctor (ND) will take a thorough case history, perform a physical examination and may order blood and urine testing. If your case requires, the physical may include more specific examinations such as gynecological, breast, rectal, prostate or genital exams.
It is very important that you inform your Naturopathic Doctor immediately of any disease process from which you are suffering and any medications/over-the-counter drugs that you are currently taking. Please advise your ND immediately if you are pregnant, suspect you are pregnant or if you are breast-feeding.
As a patient you will receive information about your diagnosis and/or treatment, alternative courses of action, costs, expected benefits, risks, side-effects and in each case the consequences of not having the diagnosis and/or treatment acted upon.
