What is naturopathic medicine?

Naturopathic medicine uses the most natural, least invasive approach to treating illness.

How is naturopathic medicine different?

Naturopathic medicine is rooted in nature, and it is based on the following six principles:

  • The healing power of nature
  • Identifying the underlying cause of an ailment, rather than just masking the symptoms
  • Using highly effective treatments that are minimally invasive
  • Treating the whole person: considering physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, genetic, environmental, and social factors
  • Doctor serving as teacher to empower patients to take responsibility for their own health
  • Prevention of disease is the best cure

The doctor-patient relationship is extremely important to naturopathic principles. Dr. Asad works with each patient to establish health goals, address concerns, and provide the necessary means for people of all ages to achieve their own best possible health.
