What is naturopathic medicine?
Naturopathic medicine, or naturopathy, is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on preventive care and promoting health and wellbeing through natural, non-invasive techniques and therapies. Treatments are highly specialized for each patient, with consideration of the root causes of each patient’s symptoms in order to give the body what it needs to achieve optimal health. To restore or maintain health in her patients, Dr. Quraishi utilizes a combination of methods including diet and nutrition management, herbal medicine, supplements, mind-body therapy, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, and lifestyle assessment and coaching. She believes that nutrition and natural remedies are at the core of promoting good health and self-healing, one of the foundations of the philosophy behind naturopathic medicine.
