The modalities of naturopathic medicine include:
Nutrition. E.g. prescribing foods that heal, foods that prevent disease.
Herbal Medicine. E.g. herbs that help your body cleanse.
Asian Medicine. E.g. acupuncture, herbs, tea.
Homeopathic Medicine. E.g. correction of the root causes of diseases through remedies.
Physical Medicine. E.g. massage, water therapy.

Through these six modalities, a naturopathic doctor will work to find the cause of disease and will treat the patient as a whole, helping his or her own body to heal itself.
