Integrative and Holistic Medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses care of the whole person – body, mind, and spirit; integrating conventional and complementary therapies to promote optimal health, and prevent and treat disease by addressing contributing factors.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct integrative healthcare profession that combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are trained as primary care providers who diagnose, treat, and manage patients with acute and chronic conditions, while addressing disease and dysfunction through a holistic lens.
