Naturopathic Medicine

What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a field of medicine that concentrates on the use of traditional case studies and evidence-based therapies to promote natural healing and preventative healthcare. SCIMEDICA Health Group combines traditional techniques with modern medicine to treat the whole person and any underlying conditions. We consider the physical, genetic, mental, emotional, environmental, and any other personal factors when caring for a patient. A naturopathic physician is often an educator as well as a doctor, teaching patients the importance of therapeutic healing and self-responsibility for health.

Why is naturopathic medicine used?

Naturopathic medicine is used to promote the body’s natural healing abilities. A naturopathic physician identifies and eliminates obstacles that prevent the body’s ability to heal itself. We at SCIMEDICA treat the whole patient, rather than the symptoms. We help to guide patients toward improved health and vitality in the following areas:

What does naturopathic medicine involve?

One of our naturopathic doctors will consult with a patient and evaluate the individual’s specific needs. Once a diagnosis is made, targeted therapies are used to treat the condition, taking care to address all underlying factors.

When treating a patient, SCIMEDICA doctors will adhere to the following Naturopathic Principles:

  • Using medicine with minimal side effects
  • Avoiding use of medication or treatments that suppress symptoms and causes unwanted side-effects.
  • Respecting the individual’s natural healing process, using the least invasive measures to help the healing progression
