What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine can be summarized as a system of advanced integrative medicine which also utilizes science-based wellness strategies to treat disease and maintain health. The American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP) website has a wealth of information for those who want to know more about the health care licensed naturopathic physicians provide. Below is an AANP sponsored video introduction to Naturopathic Medicine.
Integrating natural and conventional therapies and diagnostics takes advantage of the strengths of each system. Summit Integrative Medicine's doctors advance integrative medicine to the next level by treating the whole person -not just the disease. Our holistic, patient-centered care emphasizes assissing and optimizing the function of the body's complex, interrelated systems. All aspects of health and wellness are taken into consideration, including honoring the connection between body, mind and spirit.
Our comprehensive treatment plans utilize the best of modern and traditional medicine to address the underlying cause of disease and emphasize less invasive therapies such as diet, nutrition, homeopathy and other natural therapies. This approach activates the body's innate ability to heal itself, leading to regeneration, rejuvenation and restoration of health.
