Naturopathy, or naturopathic medicine, is a form of healthcare that combines modern treatment with traditional medicine to support the body’s capacity to heal itself. Through alternative medicine, natural therapies and modern medicine practices, naturopathic doctors work with patients to help balance the body to relieve, reduce and eliminate symptoms and minimize the likelihood for illness to occur in the future.
ECHN’s Naturopathic doctors address disease and dysfunction within the body to balance mind, body and spirit. In doing so, they are able to manage symptoms related to disease. Our naturopaths treat patients with acute and chronic conditions, ranging from, but not limited to, cardiovascular disease, musculoskeletal pain, type 2 diabetes, depression and anxiety.
