Naturopathic medicine is

holistic medicine.

Using natural therapies to improve health and address the root causes of disease, naturopathic doctors look at the whole person, not just the parts.

Naturopathic medicine has been a viable branch of medicine since the late 19th century.

The field emerged from western medicine as an alternative to the common medical practices of the time, which often involved the use of toxic and suppressive therapies.

Naturopathic medicine is the solution to our current healthcare crisis.

By recognizing and treating dysfunction before disease begins, naturopathic doctors can help reduce over-reliance on pharmaceuticals and excessive surgeries. If disease is already present, naturopathic doctors can help improve outcomes, and in many cases, help reverse disease and restore health.

Naturopathic medicine is evidence-based and innovative.

Naturopathic doctors draw from many spheres of knowledge, including clinical research and empirical evidence, as well as time-honored traditional healing practices.

6

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

 

 

1. First Do No Harm:
Primum non nocere


The essential principle of medicine is to avoid harm, by taking into consideration both the short and long-term consequences of diagnostic methods and treatments, and by recognizing when harm could occur from lack of action.

 


2. The Healing Power of Nature:
Vis medicatrix naturae


Naturopathic medicine recognizes that the body is its own healer and has an ordered and intelligent self-healing process. Our role is to facilitate and invigorate that process by removing obstacles to healing and recovery and to promote self-healing by stimulating one’s innate vital force.

 


3. Discover and Treat the Cause:
Tolle causum


The symptom is not the disease, but rather the harbinger of a system struggling to compensate from imbalances. Our goal is to uncover the deeper factors that are contributing to symptoms and to treat these underlying causes so that lasting improvements can occur.

 


4. Treat the Whole Person:
Tolle totum


The patient is viewed as a whole, a physical being existing in mental, emotional, spiritual, social and ecological environments. Treating the whole also means being sensitive to the environment, recognizing that personal and planetary health are deeply intertwined.

 


5. The Physician is a Teacher:
Docere


The original meaning for the word ‘doctor’ is teacher. Ultimately it is our goal to educate our patients with knowledge and tools for self-care, health maintenance, and disease prevention.

 


6. Prevention is the best “cure”:
Praevenire


Preventative medicine is more than just screening exams and prophylactic medications. It is about understanding the many factors that are determining one’s health and thus contributing to either harmony or imbalance. Our goal is uncover and resolve imbalances before they become disease states, helping patients maintain and optimize their health in the process.
