With all the different approaches to healthcare these days, some find it difficult to know exactly what is a naturopath. Naturopathy, or naturopathic medicine, is a medical system that focuses on traditional, holistic, and natural healthcare solutions. A naturopathic physician’s approach to healthcare is more proactive. Generally, it works with the individual to make changes to their health and lifestyle, especially with acute and chronic conditions. They utilize treatments that may involve supplement prescriptions, changes to diet and lifestyle, herbs, acupuncture, exercise therapy, and more.
