Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Naturopathic medicine uses a wide variety of therapies to uncover and treat the root cause of patient health concerns. The focus of naturopathic care is centered on the individual, their current health, family history and testing to direct a practitioner to their diagnosis and an effective treatment plan. A range of different therapies can be used to address your physical, mental and emotional health. The range of modalities all assist the body's healing response, and they are often more effective when combined.

The phrase "Primary Care" may not be understood by everyone. It refers to the first step or first contact a person takes when they have a health problem. Most Canadians visit a Family Doctor, or primary care physician, as their first step; Naturopathic Doctors are also trained as primary care providers. It can address most health care complaints. In cases where a deeper understanding from specialized training and skills are required, the person is referred to other practitioners, often classified as specialists.
