In Washington State, naturopathic doctors can also prescribe prescription medications. If this is necessary for your condition, your naturopathic doctor won’t hesitate to give you a prescription.
Botanical medicine — is the use of plants as medicine. Many plant substances are powerful, safe and effective medicine when used properly. A resurgence of scientific research in Europe and Asia shows that some plant substances are superior to synthetic drugs in clinical conditions.
Homeopathy — is a powerful system of medicine that is over 200 years old. This medical system uses highly diluted substances to cure illness. Homeopathic remedies enhance the body’s innate immune response and rarely have side effects. Some conditions that do not respond well to conventional medicine will respond to homeopathic therapies.
Nutrition & nutrient therapy — is a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine. It refers to both the practice of using food to maintain health and the therapeutic use of food to treat illness. Scientific research shows that many medical conditions can be treated as effectively with food and nutritional supplements as they can by other means, with fewer complications and side effects.
Physical medicine — includes naturopathic manipulation of the muscles, bones and spine. Heat and cold, gentle electrical impulses, ultrasound, hydrotherapy and exercise therapy are also used.
