An Integrative Approach

Naturopathic medicine adds an integrative holistic perspective to the comprehensive services offered at the IMSMP. The goal of naturopathic care is to promote overall health by addressing nutritional, lifestyle, and environmental factors that may underlie disease. Naturopathic Doctors are experts in the use of natural therapies, such as clinical nutrition and botanical medicine, and in drug-herb-supplement interactions.
