Naturopathic Medicine Week

Naturopathic Medicine Week



Naturopathic Medicine Week is an annual celebration of the power of naturopathic medicine. Across the province, NDs invite you to open houses, lectures, and practical workshops to learn more about leading a healthy life.

Naturopathic Medicine Week this year takes place from May 9-13, 2016. OAND provides support and materials for members to participate in Naturopathic Medicine Week annually. Our main goal during NMW is to bring the profession to light. Members can view our NMW resources in the Members Only section.

During NMW, naturopathic doctors across Canada will be teaching members of their community about the value of naturopathic medicine, healthy living, and disease prevention. Join naturopathic doctors in your area for free events and meet & greet sessions held at local book stores, community hubs, and health clinics.

Dr. Scott Clack will give several brief (10 min) overviews about Naturopathic Medicine and Principles, as well as Basic Treatment Tips to Start Better Health. In one-on-one meetings or group discussions, Dr. Clack will show how Naturopathic Doctors use patient history, physical examinations and lab testing to assess each person’s condition and uncover treatment options that may not have been recommended for you before. Through this process Dr. Clack hopes that you can learn and understand that Naturopathic Medicine is an effective approach to your personal health care, especially if you are looking to combine (integrate) it with conventional treatment.
