Naturopath Victoria BC
What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. A naturopathic doctor aims to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
Our Naturopath, Dr Marita Schauch, treats both acute and chronic conditions. She delivers naturopathic medicine based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental, and lifestyle factors. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, naturopathic medicine including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and acupuncture may be used during treatments.
