Naturopathic Medicine is not against conventional medicine but completes it.
Based on its philosophy, the focus is not on one symptom, or complaint, but
naturopathic doctors believe that the whole body works as a system and that all
signs and symptoms are directly related to each other. Therefore, naturopathic
doctors devote 60 to 90 minutes towards the initial consultation to cover all
relevant areas of concern. In such a holistic approach, NDs try to understand the
root source of a disease to thus be able to target the cause.
