Can Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) treat______________?

YES!  NDs are primary health care practitioners, which means that they can treat the same conditions as a family doctor, including both acute concerns and chronic health conditions.  In the event that an ND is unable to treat your condition, they will refer appropriately.

Examples of health conditions that naturopathic medicine is effective in treating include:

·        Allergies & Environmental Sensitivities
·        Arthritis, Chronic Pain
·        Digestive Disorders, Constipation, IBS
·        Skin Disorders (Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne)
·        Hypertension (High Blood Pressure), High Cholesterol
·        Heart Problems
·        Diabetes, Insulin Resistance
·        Immune Disorders
·        Colds, Flu, Sinusitis, Tonsillitis
·        Ear and Throat Infections
·        Menopausal Problems
·        PMS, Menstrual Disorders
·        Insomnia
·        Detoxification
·        Weight Management
·        Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
