Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of primary care that addresses the root cause of illness or disease and promotes health and healing using natural therapies. Naturopathic doctors are specially trained in disease prevention and thereby are able to provide education to individuals about how to achieve optimal health and wellness. Naturopathic Medicine is the oldest form of effective medicine, which can be dated back hundreds of years. The appearance of symptoms in the body during a diseased condition is simply a signal that there is something wrong within the body due to improper diet, nutritional deficiencies, environmental factors, toxicities, injury and stress, to merely name a few examples. Naturopaths place an emphasis on allowing the body to heal itself while using methods and medicines that minimize the risk of harmful side effects. Our Naturopathic Doctors at Health Bound integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies and provide individualized treatment that includes the consideration of the physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors therefore regarding the person as a whole.
