Naturopathic Medicine in Calgary
Explaining Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct approach to health care that utilizes natural methods and substances to support and stimulate the body's inherent self-healing process. Practitioners of naturopathic medicine view an individual as an integral whole. The symptoms of disease (such as low energy and headaches) are seen as warning signals of improper function and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Rather than treating these symptoms, however, the primary goal of naturopathic medicine is to treat the underlying causes.

The Rising Popularity of Natural Medicine
There has been a steady revival of interest in natural medicine, alternative medicine and preventative health care. People are becoming increasingly aware that although pharmaceuticals and surgery are valuable tools, they are not always the only answer. Many individuals that do not feel well are told by medical doctors that their physical exams and blood tests indicate they are in perfect health. Many people visit our Calgary centre for naturopathic medicine and tell us they are frustrated by health concerns that are met with little to no answers or treatment recommendations. This is where natural medicine can help. By stepping in to address all a patient's concerns, natural medicine can often achieve results where traditional medicine has failed.

Explaining Integrative Medicine
Integrative medicine combines traditional biomedicine with alternative medicine and healing practices such as herbal remedies, acupuncture, supplements, massage therapy and chiropractic care. By recognizing the value and perspective of various health practices, integrative medicine has the potential to support the body’s natural healing processes.
The body is inherently designed to return to health. By utilizing integrative medicine, it can regain energy, optimal health and provide for a better quality of life. Naturopathic medicine treats an individual's symptoms as the body's way of expressing imbalances. In supporting – rather than overriding – the body's natural mechanisms through integrative medicine, it can return to a healthy state.
