How Does Naturopathic Medicine Work?
Naturopathic treatments depend on the client’s needs, interests, and goals. Any special concerns that need to be addressed such as osteoporosis, vitamin deficiencies, and physical activity (weight bearing exercises) will constitute major components of the treatment plans. Clients are educated on the foundations of diet, stress management, sleep routines, hydration and physical activity.
