What is Naturopathic Medicine? Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of healthcare that applies naturopathic philosophy to the treatment and restoration of health through natural, noninvasive, non-toxic therapies. Naturopatic medicine promotes prevention and can treat acute and chronic illnesses.

Naturopathic physicians are general practitioners trained as specialists in natural medicine. They are educated in the conventional medical sciences, but they are not orthodox medical doctors. Naturopathic physicians treat disease and restore health using therapies from the sciences of clinical nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, exercise therapy, counseling, acupuncture, and hydrotherapy. They tailor these approaches to the needs of an individual patient. Naturopathic medicine is effective in treating most health problems, whether acute or chronic.

In the Spotlight
Don't Labor with Job Stess
After dealing with 45 minutes of traffic, you dash into work 15 minutes late. You're greeted with ten urgent phone calls to return, three meetings scheduled, and a pile of projects two stories high on your desk to be completed by the end of the day. Feeling a little stressed? Let's face it; stress is a natural and inevitable part of every day life.

By taking a holistic approach to combating stress in the work place, we leave no room for stress to get the best of us. That means following a plan that addresses the mind, body, and spirit. Here is a sure fire program which will help you reduce and cope with stress on the job. It's quick, it's easy, and it works. So, give it a try!

THE MIND
Our body's response to stress is greatly dependent on how we perceive stress. Monitor what you are thinking when you're feeling stressed. If we think something is stressful, our body thinks so, too.

THE BODY

  • Shoulder Roll
  • Arm Stretch
  • Neck Stretch
  • Finger Spread

THE SPIRIT
In a stressful situation, it is important to remember the things that nourish your spirit. Take a few minutes to take a few deep breaths. Breathing from your lower abdomen, inhale for a two count and out for a four count. Try doing five repetitions.

Native American Proverb. Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I may not remember. Involve me and I will understand.
