Naturopathic Medicine describes a system of medicine that emphasizes treating the whole person, finding and treating the root cause, and using the least force necessary to achieve health. Naturopathic doctors also put a greater focus on preventive medicine, and spend time teaching patients how to live a healthy lifestyle including diet, movement, and stress management.
Naturopathic doctors are licensed primary care providers in New Hampshire. They can run lab tests, order imaging, administer vaccinations, injections, and IVs and prescribe medications as necessary. Much of what they do is just like a conventional physician; however, their expertise in integrative medicine allows them to safely recommend dietary supplements, nutrients, and herbal medicines in combination with conventional medicines to help you reach a better state of health.
Our team of naturopathic doctors provide primary care for many of our patients including routine check-ups for children and adults, well-woman exams, and more. In addition, many patients choose to retain another primary care provider and see our naturopathic doctors as specialists, to help in managing a specific condition or complaint. Either way, the naturopathic approach to care allows you to have an “old fashioned” relationship with your doctor while receiving the most cutting edge care available in New England.
