Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/28/2016 -- As a naturopathic doctor, Dr. Courtney Holmberg is pleased to share information about what naturopathic medicine is and how it helps provide a viable treatment option for people looking for other forms of care besides conventional medicine.
For a long time, people had the misconception that naturopathic medicine was reserved for only those people who desired an alternative, natural way to treat ailments. However, today this is no longer the case and licensed naturopathic doctors provide complementary forms of treatment to help patients deal with a wide array of medical conditions. In many cases, people will seek both conventional and naturopathic treatments to aid in their recovery from various illnesses, diseases, and aliments.
In Canada, licensed naturopathic doctors undergo extensive education similar to that of a convention doctor. They must complete undergraduate work before beginning studies on several different treatments, which they spend a minimum of four years practicing and studying before obtaining their license.
These treatments can include:
In fact, many naturopathic doctors also complete training and studies in several key conventional medical areas during the course of their education.
Naturopathic doctors in Toronto and throughout Canada tend to focus in specific treatment areas. For instance, Dr. Holmberg offers a wide range of treatment options that includes counselling, acupuncture, herbal medicine, fertility and IVF support, comprehensive hormone and food allergy testing, nutritional counseling, and professional supplements, with a personal and clinical interest in digestion, hormones, and autoimmunity.
When selecting a naturopathic doctor, it is important to choose one that has completed the appropriate board examinations, graduated from an accredited college, and who is licensed to practice medicine. The College of Naturopaths is currently the only college that licenses naturopathic doctors in Ontario.
