Naturopathic Doctors look at each person as an integrative whole, not seeing the person as a set of physical symptoms or as a disease. We look at all aspects of the individual, considering the mental, emotional, social, and environmental aspects to see how each impacts on a person's health.

Patient education is a vital part of Naturopathic practice, because it leads to good health. In helping patients to better understand their conditions and the available treatment options, Naturopathic Doctors enable their patients to take an active role in their health. Using simple manageable steps, Naturopathic Doctors can help to reduce the risk of future illness and injuries without further adding to the stress of everyday life.
