Naturopathic medicine is preventative medicine
Through the use of a variety of evidence-based natural therapies. A Naturopathic doctor is medically trained, naturally focused and regulated through the provincial association (Manitoba Naturopathic Association www.cndmb.org) and the national association (Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors www.cand.ca).
A visit to a Naturopathic doctor can be considered alongside or in place of any issue that would bring you to see your regular medical doctor. Naturopathic doctors are not covered by provincial healthcare, but are covered through extended medical plans.
During a first visit, an ND will review and examine all of your health concerns in detail to determine the root cause(s) of your complaints. Often lab tests are recommended and/or requested from your medical doctor. If necessary, we would recommend that you to a visit a lab for blood work as this helps an ND on which options are available to take the next steps in your wellness journey.
Knowing and understanding Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principle that like cures like. Using microdoses of natural substances to engage and tune the body’s ability to heal itself, Homeopathy is the most popular type of natural medicine around the world.
Homeopathy is part of the National Health Care system in most European countries and is becoming increasingly common in the health care plans across North America as our population continues to focus on health and wellness, preventative medicine, and a natural and holistic approach to healing. Homeopathic Medicines have been used for centuries as a safe, natural, and effective support to the healing process.
A form of medicine this widely used needs to be researched, yet scientific research in homeopathy is a relatively new field. Consequently, there are many important, unanswered questions, such as, how effective is homeopathy compared with conventional medicine for specific medical conditions? What does homeopathy cost compared with existing treatments? What effect do homeopathic medicines have ‘in vitro’?
Researchers around the world have begun to investigate these kinds of questions and some exciting results have been published, but more research is essential if we are to find the definitive answers both patients and healthcare providers need.
