Doctors of Naturopathy are trained in the use of a broad array of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities based on natural and holistic principles. These are designed to support and stimulate the body's ability to heal itself. Some of these modalities include holistic nutrition, acupuncture, herbal and natural supplements, homeopathy and physical therapies. The Naturopathic doctor will provide a full 60-minute assessment and consultation leading to recommendations regarding any special testing or therapies tailored to your physical examination, personal and family history.
