Naturopathic Medicine in Waterdown


What Is Naturopathic Medicine?

First and foremost, it is the approach, philosophy and training of naturopathic doctors that distinguishes naturopathic medicine from other forms of health care. It is founded upon stimulating and supporting the healing power of the body.

Naturopathic medicine is a way to achieve better health; through detailed intakes, physical exams, and relevant lab work, it addresses each patient’s’ specific concerns. Naturopathic assessment, diagnosis and treatment integrate western medical sciences as the foundation for diagnosis while blending modern research based medicine with century old knowledge and philosophy. This provides a unique blend of conventional and natural medicine.

The Focus of Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine focuses on not only the presenting symptoms you are experiencing, but also what the underlying cause of the symptoms are. Dr. Jennifer Scott finds that through understanding the root cause of disease and addressing modifiable risk factors, we are able to support and work with the body’s natural ability to heal.

Health promotion and disease prevention are key components of naturopathic medicine, and Dr. Jennifer’s practice, to optimize conditions for healthy living.

The focus of naturopathic care is you! Health is more than just the physical – it includes the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of a person. Naturopathic treatments are safe, effective and individualized. Dr. Jennifer works to collaborate with you as a patient as well as your other health care practitioners to provide you with the best care possible.

The Six Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

  • First do no harm – the use of therapies that are minimally invasive
  • The Healing power of nature
  • Identification and treatment of the root causes of disease
  • The primary role of the doctor as teacher
  • Treatment of the whole person – mind, body and spirit
  • Disease prevention and health promotion
