Naturopathic Medicine is a special form of primary health care as it emphasizes prevention, treatment and optimal health through modalities that encourage our inherent self-healing mechanisms. Naturopathic physicians are trained in naturopathic principles, nutritional therapeutics, botanical medicine, homeopathy and physical medicine as well as the typical array of medical school subjects like pharmacology, physical diagnosis, lab interpretation and minor surgery.
Dr. Gandre believes naturopathic medicine is the most logical, humanistic approach to primary health care. Every patient has a unique set of circumstances effecting his or her physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health, so time and consideration must be given to adequately address each patient’s health concerns.
