Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession. It combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Steeped in traditional healing methods, principles and practices, naturopathic medicine focuses on holistic, proactive prevention and comprehensive diagnosis and treatment. By using protocols that minimize the risk of harm, naturopathic doctors help facilitate the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health.
The past 30 years have seen an extraordinary increase in consumer demand for high-quality natural health care. Naturopathic medicine has emerged as the health-care profession best suited to meet this demand. Although it almost disappeared in the mid-twentieth century because of the popularity of drugs and surgery, naturopathic medicine offers safe, effective natural therapies as a vital part of the health-care systems of North America in the twenty-first century.
The United States Congress has recognized the value of naturopathic medicine in providing safe, effective, and affordable health care. Colorado law allows naturopathic doctors to evaluate, diagnose, and treat injury and disease. Steamboat Naturopathic is proud to be integrating this holistic approach right here in Steamboat Springs.
