Our philosophies and treatment modalities differ in that Naturopathic Doctors take a natural, non-invasive, non-suppressive, non-synthetic and holistic approach to addressing health conditions, whereas Medical Doctors take a more invasive approach. The conventional suppressive approach can be faster acting however may have many more serious side effects. There is a place for modern medicine in serious and life-threatening conditions where natural medicine could take too long in bringing relief. Naturopathic Doctors are trained as primary health care providers and are experts in drug/nutrient and drug/herb interactions and know when to refer for further medical care.
