At Nova, our patients have the opportunity to experience the benefits of complementary medicine without foregoing traditional conventional medical evaluations and oversight. While modern conventional medicine focuses on the treatment of specific illnesses, complementary medicine – including naturopathic medicine, acupuncture and oriental medicine – expands the therapeutic approaches available to each patient.
Naturopathic Medicine is an alternative medical system that focuses on natural remedies and the body’s vitalistic ability to heal and maintain itself. Naturopathic philosophy favors a holistic approach and minimal use of surgery and drugs. Instead, naturopaths will look at the use of natural methods and materials like clinical nutrition and dietary supplements, herbal medicine, and homeopathy.
In practice, naturopaths consider the fundamental components of health – biochemistry, biomechanics, and the emotional predisposition – in order to help a person restore the balance that we describe as good health. Naturopathic medicine offers safe, cost-effective solutions for many of our nation’s healthcare problems.
