Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Doctors in Vancouver WA - Discover your body’s innate ability to heal.  

What is Naturopathic Medicine?          

Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic and integrative approach to medical care. Naturopathic medicine seeks to harness your body’s innate healing power to optimize wellness.

It is a healing-focused practice that integrates the best of Eastern and Western medical philosophies. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) seek to identify and treat the underlying causes of their patient’s symptoms, using detailed history taking and comprehensive lab testing to support accurate diagnoses. NDs are trained as primary care physicians and are licensed at the state level.

How does Naturopathic Medicine differ from conventional medical care?

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) utilize an individualized approach to care, taking time to identify and treat each patient’s specific needs and to educate patients about health and healing to include the patient in their own journey toward healing. Office visits with NDs are generally 30-60 minutes compared to 5-15 min used in most conventional Western medical settings.
