Mission Statement

Dr. Penelope Houghton created the Acadia Naturopathic Medical Clinic with the mission to allow time with the patient for attentive listening, holistic care, and tailored treatments. An eclectic range of therapies is offered which embody core naturopathic principles; recognize patients as individuals; enable healing beyond managing symptoms of disease; and empower motivated clients toward optimal self care. The vision is to transform the client’s dependence on the current paradigm of genetic determination; waging war against invaders and diseases; and perpetual symptom management; to one of active health promotion, restoration and wellness on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. Comprehensive care for patients of all ages and in all stages of health is provided.
