Drum roll please…
Naturopathic Medicine Week (May 6 to 12, 2013) is organized by Naturopathic Doctors of Ontario with various events such as open houses, lectures, and practical workshops for residents to learn more about leading a healthy life and the care naturopathic doctors can offer.
Naturopathic doctors are considered primary care physicians as they can offer patients from neonate to the elderly health care for everything from skin disorders to gastrointestinal disorders to treating and supporting cancer care.
The approach is all about treating the whole person and using Mother Nature to cure. Naturopathy uses modalities of botanical medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, nutrition and lifestyle counselling, and hydrotherapy.
