NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

Naturopathic Medicine, sometimes called Naturopathy, is a holistic approach to addressing disease using natural means and lifestyle based care. ​

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

  • Nature has healing power, and the human body has a natural and innate tendency toward equilibrium and optimal health
     

  • Identify and remove underlying causes of illness, rather than seek to mask or eliminate symptoms
     

  • Do no harm: support the body with substances that minimize the chances for harmful side effects
     

  • The doctor is a teacher, whose responsibility is to educate her clients and empower them to take control of their own health
     

  • Treat every person like an individual: physical, mental, emotional, genetic, spiritual, and social factors are unique in every person
     

  • Emphasize disease prevention with focused interventions
