Mr. Speaker, each year, more and more Canadians are turning to naturopathic doctors to help with their everyday health care needs.
By treating the whole person and focusing on the root cause of an illness, naturopathic doctors are able to help patients in both the immediate and long term.
Today, Canadians want to be better informed about their health care options and how they can be more proactive when it comes to their health care needs.
This should be applauded and further encouraged with greater tools and resources. That is why I encourage Canadians this week to take part in Naturopathic Medicine Week.
Naturopathic doctors across Canada can educate members of their communities about the benefits of naturopathic medicine, a healthy lifestyle and the prevention of illness.
Canadians can find more information on the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors' website or by visiting their community naturopathic doctor.
Our party recognizes Naturopathic Medicine Week and the many benefits naturopathic medicine provides to Canadians.
