Peak Health Group integrates also a separate and distinct system of health care termed Naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are primary care physicians who blend centuries-old knowledge and a philosophy that nature is the most effective healer with current research on health and human systems. Naturopathic medicine emphasizes prevention and the self-healing process through natural therapies. With roots dating back to the 1890s, naturopathic medicine is witnessing an surge of public interest in recent years as people strive to solve the health care puzzle using prevention, wellness and respect for nature’s inherent healing ability.
Naturopathic diagnosis focuses on identifying the underlying causes of disease, while naturopathic therapies are supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals from many disciplines, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, European complementary medicine, clinical nutrition, phytotherapy, pharmacognosy, homeopathy, psychology and spirituality.
The therapeutic modalities used in naturopathic medicine (including physical manipulation, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy and hydrotherapy) integrate conventional, scientific and empirical methodology with the ancient laws of nature.
