Botanical Medicine uses plants and plant substances for their therapeutic effects and nutritional value. Botanical medicine is highly effective and safe when used under the supervision of a naturopathic doctor. Herbs can be prepared in many forms, such as teas, tinctures or capsules.
Homeopathy is more than 200 years old and is widely accepted throughout the world. Homeopathic remedies are made from specific dilutions of plant, animal and mineral substances. When carefully matched to the patient’s symptoms, they are able to affect the body on both the physical and emotional levels with few side effects.
