About Our Practice
Naturopathic Physicians (N.D.s) are the highest trained practitioners in the broadest scope of naturopathic medical modalities. In addition to the basic medical sciences and conventional diagnostics, naturopathic education includes therapeutic nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, natural childbirth, classical Chinese medicine, hydrotherapy, naturopathic manipulative therapy, pharmacology and minor surgery.
What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is based on the fact that the human body has the power to heal itself. Naturopathic Medicine is founded upon a holistic philosophy; naturopathic medicine combines safe and effective traditional therapies with the most current advances in modern medicine. Naturopathic medicine is appropriate for the management of a broad range of health conditions affecting all people of all ages.
In the state of Connecticut, Naturopathic physicians diagnose and treat all manner of illness: first-aid, acute and chronic conditions. Naturopathic physicians attend four year, post-graduate, in-residence medical schools where they study much of the same material their medical colleagues do with regard to anatomy, physiology, biochemistry as well as the diagnostic course work such as physical and clinical diagnosis, laboratory diagnosis and X-ray diagnosis. Instead of using pharmaceutical drugs and surgery, naturopathic physicians work with a wide range of therapeutic modalities all of which attempt to help the body heal itself.
Naturopathic physicians are unique in providing diagnosis and treatment that bridges both conventional and natural medicine perspectives; they integrate scientific research with the healing powers of nature.
