Naturopathic medicine is the natural path to wellness because it offers complete care for the whole person – mind, spirit and body. Natural therapies address people, not diseases, and empower people to take responsibility for their own health and well being, thereby creating a greater sense of satisfaction and true healing with health care. It is the missing piece in today's medical paradigm because it addresses lifestyle. It works hand-in-hand with conventional medicine.
