What is Naturopathic Medicine?
The term Naturopathic Medicine refers to a distinct system of primary healthcare that uses natural methods to support and stimulate the body's inherent self-healing process. The human body possesses enormous power to heal itself through mechanisms of "homeostasis" - restoring balance in structure and function and adapting to environmental changes. Treatments commonly provided include Clinical Nutrition and Biochemical Therapies, Botanical Medicine, Homeopathic Medicine, Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Lifestyle Counselling and Stress Management.
Naturopathic doctors registered in licensed provinces must complete four years of professional training at a recognized college of Naturopathic Medicine. Admission requirements include three years of pre-medical studies at a recognized university.
