Naturopathic Medicine

naturopahic medicineA Naturopathic Doctor is essentially a healthcare practitioner of Natural/Alternative and Integrative medicines. Healing is promoted by addressing the following:

  • Treat the underlying cause in addition to the symptoms
  • Use safe and non-toxic natural medicines
  • Utilize a preventative approach
  • Utilize evidence based treatments

Health and disease result from a complex of physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social and other factors. Naturopathic medicine recognizes the harmonious functioning of all aspects of the individual as being essential to health. The multifactorial nature of health and disease requires a personalized and comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment. Naturopathic physicians treat the whole person taking all of these factors into account. To learn more about Dr. Vivian Kwan and Dr. Samina Mitha, read below.
