Naturopathic Principles

Naturopathic Medicine operates under the following six principles:

1. First, Do No Harm

2. The Healing Power of Nature

3. Find and Treat the Cause

4. Treat the Whole Person

5. Preventive Medicine

6. Doctor as Teacher

A Naturopathic Doctor treats the whole person, looking for and treating the cause of disease, rather than focusing on suppression of individual symptoms.  Physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of a patient’s health are considered, because Naturopathic Doctors believe health is more than just the absence of disease.  The most natural, least-invasive methods of treatment are used to stimulate the body’s own innate ability to heal itself.  Naturopathic Doctors teach patients how to adjust lifestyle and diet to prevent chronic disease.
