Naturopathic Medicine

Experienced, Medically Trained Naturopath: Surrey, BC

In today’s world, more and more people seek naturopathic doctors to fight and prevent pain, disease, and dysfunction. Embracing a team approach to health and wellness, our naturopaths will work with your family medical doctor and any other healthcare professionals to ensure you are receiving the best possible treatment.

Naturopathic medicine is a primary healthcare system emphasizing prevention, treatment, and the promotion of optimal health through the use of natural therapeutic methods and modalities. The foundation of naturopathic treatment is based on individualized patient care with a focus on treating the cause and healing from within. Naturopathic medicine investigates the relationship between physical, mental, and emotional wellness to create health.

In addition to conventional training in health sciences and diagnostics, a naturopathic doctor employs individualized therapies to ensure a holistic, integrated approach to health and healing. Naturopathic medicine is an evidence-based, coordinated approach to primary healthcare that is tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient.
