The six fundamental principles of Naturopathic Medicine are:
The Healing Power of Nature
Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.
Identify and Treat the Causes
Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.
First, Do No Harm
Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.
Doctor as Teacher
Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.
Treat the Whole Person
View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.
Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.
Training and Approach:
Naturopathic Doctors attend an accredited four year institution which requires intensive study of medical sciences and holistic approaches to disease. By the end of the program, each doctor has seen and treated at least 350 patients and passed multiple clinical competency exams.
In Naturopathy, an emphasis is put on evidence-based approaches to disease while also utilizing traditional approaches to health and wellness. The Naturopathic doctor strives to understand the picture of disease and how it affects the patient as a whole person. This allows us to personalize our recommendations to fit a patient’s specific constellation of symptoms.
