Yorkdale Integrated Clinic provides a multitude of health services with a focus on Naturopathic medicine. According to the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND)
Naturopathic medicine is a system of medicine that has been practiced in North America for over 125 years. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession built on a patient-centred approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that support the body’s natural ability to heal and help the patient achieve sustainable health and wellness.
Naturopathic medicine involves a functional medicine approach to healthcare, identifying the biochemical and physiological imbalances within the individual, and using natural, scientifcally-proven solutions to rectify these imbalances. Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) focus on naturally occurring substances, minimally invasive methods, and the promotion of natural healing. They also emphasize illness prevention and a healthy diet and lifestyle.
The OAND further states that the basic tenants of care under this practice include:
1. Utilization of therapies that are minimally invasive
2. The healing power of nature
3. Identifcation and treatment of the causes of disease
4. The primary role of the doctor as the teacher
5. Treatment of the whole person
6. Disease prevention and health promotion
