  • What is Naturopathic Medicine?

    Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that addresses the root causes of illness, and promotes health and healing using natural therapies. It supports your body's own healing ability using an integrated approach to disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention.The strength and uniqueness of naturopathic medicine is founded on six principles:

    • 1
      First, do no harm

      Safe, effective natural medicines are used that have a minimal risk of harmful side effects.

    • 2
      Identify and treat the causes

      It's better to diagnose and remove the underlying causes of illness than to just temporarily treat the symptoms of disease.

    • 3
      Support the healing power of nature

      The body has an incredible ability to heal itself when the obstacles to cure are removed and the optimal healing environment is provided.

    • 4
      Treat the whole person

      To successfully treat the whole person, it's necessary to consider all of the physical, mental, emotional and environmental factors that are contributing to the current state of health.

    • 5
      Emphasize prevention

      Future illnesses can be prevented by carefully assessing current risk factors and making appropriate changes.

    • 6
      Doctor as Teacher

      Naturopathic doctors openly share knowledge with their patients and encourage active participation in achieving optimal health goals.

She began to incorporate concepts she had been taught into her daily life and experienced profound improvements in her general health, energy and state of mind.

    • Acupuncture

      One of the oldest, most commonly used medical procedures in the world, acupuncture originated in China more than 2,000 years ago. Acupuncture is one of the key components of the system of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). In the TCM system of medicine, the body is seen as a delicate balance of two opposing and inseparable forces: yin and yang. The main assumption in TCM is that health is achieved by maintaining the body in a “balanced state” and that disease is due to an internal imbalance of yin and yang. This imbalance leads to the blockage in the flow of qi (vital energy) along pathways known as meridians. Helpful adjunctive treatments include, Moxa, Cupping, Guasha, and Tui na massage. Dr. Sicard specializes in pain management and fertility through acupuncture.

    • Botanical Medicine

      Botanical medicine utilizes diverse plant substances from around the world for their powerful healing and nutritional values. Naturopathic doctors use herbs from Europe, the Americas, China and India to prevent and alleviate illness. The flowers, roots, leaves or oils of a plant may be used in the remedy. Therapy may take the form of:
      • Teas • Tinctures • Ointments • Essential oils • Capsules

    • Clinical Nutrition

      Food is essential to life. However, the food we choose can make the difference between being well and being sick. Using food as medicine is one of the simplest ways to help heal the body. Applying a Functional Medicine approach can help target certain disease pathways and help restore health. For example, someone who has been in pain for many months or years may feel a decrease in their pain once they make some key dietary changes. Another example, the connection between blood sugar dysregulation and fertility issues. Diet has an immense impact on our health and it is essential to help restore quality of life.

    • Homeopathy

      Homeopathic medicine is a natural, nontoxic therapeutic system of healing that assists the inherent ability of the body to heal itself. Homeopathy restores the body to homeostasis, or healthy balance, which is considered its natural state. The symptoms of a disease are regarded as the body's own defensive attempt to correct its imbalance, rather than as enemies to be defeated. Homeopathic remedies are designed to stimulate this internal curative process rather than to suppress the symptoms.

    • Lifestyle Counseling

      Counseling and lifestyle modifications are important elements in overall health and should be considered when treating illness and disease. Lifestyle counseling, in conjunction with other naturopathic and traditional Chinese therapies, can provide support for those dealing with fertility issues, work-related stress, relationship difficulties, life transitions, and health problems, particularly chronic health problems.
