Nutrition and the therapeutic use of foods is a cornerstone of Naturopathic medicine. Food intolerances, deficiencies, dietary imbalances or nutritional excesses have been associated with many medical conditions. A Naturopathic doctor is trained to understand the impact that your diet is having on your health. With appropriate dietary modification and nutritional supplements, health concerns can be treated with fewer complications and fewer side effects. Addressing a fundamental nutritional issue can be a significant part of your pathway to better health.
