Naturopathic medicine is an evidence-based, coordinated approach to primary health-care that is tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. In addition to conventional training in health sciences and diagnostics, naturopathic doctors employ individualized therapies to ensure a holistic, integrated approach to health and healing.

In addition to treating acute and chronic conditions, Naturopathic doctors emphasize disease prevention and personal responsibility for ones own health. They treat the patient as a whole person, while symptoms of disease are seen as indicators of improper functioning, imbalance and/or poor lifestyle habits.

The goal of naturopathic medical treatment is to address the underlying cause of disease and to avoid treatments that might induce further harm, either by producing unwanted side effects or by complicating the existing disease process. At Glenville Wellness Centre, we have a team of Toronto Naturopathic doctors and other practitioners working together to tailor a treatment plan specific to your health and wellness goals.
