Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care. It is an art, science and practice of preventing, diagnosing and treating conditions of the mind and body.
The naturopathic physicians at VNC work with their patients to prevent and treat acute and chronic illness and disease, restore health and establish optimal fitness by supporting the person’s inherent self-healing process, the vis medicatrix naturae.
This is accomplished through:
- Prevention of disease by individualizing a preventive medicine plan including optimizing a healthy diet and lifestyle, education and identifying risk factors for preventable diseases.
- Diagnosis and evaluation of your state of health as accomplished by integration of conventional and functional medicine diagnostic methods.
- Treatment and Care utilizing therapies that work in harmony with the your inherent healing process, the vis medicatrix naturae, including: dietary therapy, nutritional and botanical medicine, counseling, naturopathic physical medicine including naturopathic manipulative therapy, minor office procedures prescription medications, and acupuncture.
