"Nature is the healer of disease" - Hippocrates
Naturopathic therapies are supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals from many disciplines and cultures, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, clinical nutrition, phytotherapy, pharmacognosy, homeopathy, psychology and spirituality. Naturopathic doctors have in common with one another a solid foundation of six fundamental guiding principles (see below or read a detailed description). Core treatment modalities of naturopathic medicine include botanical medicine, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, clinical nutrition, and physical manipulation (see Services for more information).
