Our Rockwood Naturopathic physicians receive extensive training in the use of natural substances to treat illnesses. These include homeopathic medicines, botanical medicines, vitamins and minerals. Each of these substances play an important role in restoring health and, when prescribed specifically for the presenting illness, do so gently and without the side effects encountered with drug therapy.
Because naturally derives medicines have relatively fewer side effects than drugs, and are readily available over-the-counter, many people take a large number of them on a daily basis. While this is generally beneficial, taking to many of them may have potential side effects. It is recommended that a review of them should periodically be undertaken with your naturopathic physician.
Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic maintains a natural pharmacy utilizing proprietary brands (only those sold to physicians offices) of the highest quality. The natural pharmacy is maintained to provide convenience in obtaining these medicines for our patients. However, patients may choose to obtain these medicines elsewhere and should feel free to do so.
