Naturopath, Naturopath Doctor: Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional
and natural forms of medicine. Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and
prevention using natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy,
naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine / acupuncture, low intensity laser therapy and lifestyle counselling.
A Naturopathic Doctor is a primary care practitioner that seeks to restore and maintain optimum health
in their patients by emphasizing natureís inherent self-healing process. A Naturopathic Doctor views the individual
as an integral whole including the physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment
and lifestyle factors affecting health. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning
of the body and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than disease
as an entity. The primary goal is to treat the underlying cause of the disease. This approach has proven successful
in treating both chronic and acute conditions. Treatments are chosen based on the individual patient, not based on the
generality of symptoms.
Naturopathic doctors can also complement and enhance health care services provided by other health care professionals.
They cooperate with other branches of medical science referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment
when appropriate. Naturopathic Doctors provide patients with a truly integrative form of health care.
In Canada, the naturopathic medical professionís infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions,
professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives,
and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.

Naturopathic Doctors provide a range of services supporting bone health and pain helping you achieve and maintain
a healthy lifestyle.
Low Intensity Laser Therapy has evolved from predecessor lasers to modern laser therapy systems.
Clinically verified Laser Therapies eliminate pain and inflammation in acute and chronic conditions. Laser therapy is drug free, pain free,
non-invasive, with no known side effects.
Probably the greatest beneficiaries of this technology are individuals that suffer from back pain
and arthritis. This includes athletes suffering from myofascitis, facet joint syndrome, sacroiliac joint dysfunction and disc herniations with nerve
root compression. More significantly, dramatic effects are obtained by sufferers of chronic degenerative osteoarthritis accompanied by spinal/foraminal
stenosis with attendant neurological complications. It promotes healing for many physiological conditions, is used by most professional sports teams
to repair injuries, and is one of the most effective methods of healing available today.
With "back problems" laser therapy should be the universal treatment approach and clearly establish its role as the treatment of choice.
