Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is the art and science of stimulating the bodies natural healing processes. It is a unique approach to primary health care which combines the latest medical research with natural interventions to support the bodies own healing abilities. Naturopathic medicine addresses the presenting symptoms while also treating the root cause to prevent the issue from reoccurring.

What is a Naturopathic Doctor (ND)?

Naturopathic Doctors are licensed primary care providers trained to ensure you receive optimal, holistic medical care. Our training consists of eight years of post-secondary education, four of which must be completed at an accredited Naturopathic Medical school. Graduates are educated in the same basic sciences as MDs, as well as natural therapeutics and non-toxic approaches to therapy with an emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. We are recognized under most health benefit plans.

Why would I go see a Naturopath?

NDs are trained in six different treatment modalities: Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, Botanical Medicine (herbs), Nutrition, Homeopathy, Physical Medicine, and psychology. Dr. Draper has also received specialized training to be able to offer IV Therapy and Prolotherapy. 

NDs are equipped to treat anything from the common cold to pain to chronic illness. We can perform lab tests, including food sensitivities and hormone testing, injections, and can also prescribe some pharmaceuticals. Naturopathic treatments encompass all areas of health: physical, mental and emotional, so whether it is a physical concern, a mental concern, or simply a desire to optimize your health an ND can help.
