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. The naturopathic medicine practitioner views an individual as an integral whole. The symptoms of disease (e.g. low energy, headaches, etc.) 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 cause(s).

The Rising Popularity of Natural Medicine

Over the past decade, there has been a dramatic 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 answer. Many individuals do not feel well, and yet after seeing their medical doctors, are told that the physical exams and blood tests indicate they are in perfect health. 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, using an approach of 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. The body is inherently designed to return to health, and by utilizing integrative medicine, often quickly, 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 over-riding, the body's natural mechanisms through integrative medicine, it can return to a healthy state.
