What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic is science and as well as an art. Naturopathic employs the use of natural toxin free therapies, in restoring the physiological, mental balance of an individual. According to American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, naturopathic is

“A distinct system of primary health care-an art, science, philosophy, and practice of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of illness. Naturopathic medicine is distinguished by the principles upon which its practice is based. These principles are continually re-examined in the light of scientific advances. The techniques of naturopathic medicine include modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods” (AANP, 1998).
