Naturopathic Medicine

Natural Remedies to Help the Body Heal Itself.

Naturopathic Medicine in Hamilton

The discipline of Naturopathic Medicine is regulated in the province of Ontario. It is a primary-contact discipline with no medical referral necessary for an appointment. Naturopathic Medicine is a system that uses natural remedies to assist the body in healing itself. The goal of Naturopathic Medicine is to treat the person as a whole – body, mind, and spirit. It aims to identify the root cause of an illness and heal from within rather than treat only the symptoms in isolation.

At Durand Health, our Naturopathic Doctors can assess and diagnose many medical conditions and guide our patients through a complete care plan. Treatments may include one or a combination of evidence-based and effective treatments. Rest assured that you will be educated on the goals of your treatment plan and how the methods work.
