If conventional medicine is not helping your condition, or you want to learn more about prevention or natural healing methods, you should see a naturopathic doctor. Naturopathy can help with general well being, chronic conditions, and healing. A naturopath will assist you to make positive changes in your life and help with natural supplements, exercise, and a combination of therapies.

The most effective use of an N.D. is prior to becoming ill. While most of my patients see me after the M.D.s have given up, I am always thrilled to see someone who has risk factors and a family history, but no disease yet.
It is the N.D.'s fondest wish to avoid seeing his patients ill. If I could simply prevent the illnesses brought on by lifestyle before they occur, I would literally save the health care system millions of dollars and my patients’ endless grief.
