Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct primary health care system that combines modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.
At Don Valley, our Naturopathic Doctors employ a one-on-one approach with patients and take the time to gain a complete understanding of the person, their symptoms and the underlying cause of a health condition or illness. After diagnosis, they may make diet and lifestyle recommendations and/or prescribe botanical medicines, vitamin and minerals, or use acupuncture to treat a condition.
