Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system built on a patient-centered approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that support the body’s natural ability to heal and help the patient achieve sustainable health and wellness.
Naturopathic medicine involves a functional medicine approach to healthcare, identifying the biochemical and physiological imbalances within the individual, and using natural, scientifically proven solutions to rectify these imbalances.
Naturopathic Doctors focus not only on the symptoms but also the underlying conditions causing these symptoms. Naturopathic Doctors treat the root causes of disease and address preventable risk factors, using a wide range of science-and evidence-based, and natural and conventional therapies.
Naturopathic medicine focuses on an understanding of the origins of acute and chronic disease and working to support and assist the body’s natural ability to heal, getting to the root cause of what’s wrong. Naturopathic assessment, diagnosis and treatment of the individual patient are accomplished by integrating modern and traditional care, which includes clinical and laboratory diagnostic techniques. All therapeutic options are considered and applied to help regulate the process of disease over time rather than temporarily suppress it. Naturopathic medicine is evidence-based, informed by clinical experience, research and the individual patient’s unique health situation. Health promotion and disease prevention are a particular foundation of naturopathic medicine.
The focus of naturopathic care is the individual, their current health status, family history as well as lifestyle choices and environmental influences, all of which can influence long-term health.
Naturopathic assessment, diagnosis and treatment draw from a number of therapies and are tailored to the individual. Treatments may include clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, physical treatments, medical acupuncture, and lifestyle counselling. In this way, naturopathic medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.

Additionally, RHNs assess their clients' stress, exercise, sleep, relaxation and overall lifestyle choices and monitor their clients’ progress towards their individual health goals.

Sport Psychiatry is the practice of diagnosis and treatment of psychological struggles and mental illness in athletes, taking into consideration the unique elements of the sport and the athletes' needs. It is a medical specialty and requires physician referral for access. Services are covered by provincial medical insurance (i.e. OHIP). The primary goal is not always to enhance performance; although effective therapy may achieve that outcome. Athletes may have psychiatric illness that is precipitated or worsened by sport itself, or the pressures of sport may lead to psychological struggles. Concussions, career-threatening injuries, and competition-related disappointments can also cause an athlete to struggle with their mental health. Treatment approaches take into consideration sport-, training-, and competition-focused elements and may include psychotherapy, performance, coaching, and medication (if necessary).
