What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is a true whole-person, holistic health care system.

At its heart, Naturopathic Medicine is the art and science of Holistic Medical Care. Whatever treatments are used – be they herbs, supplements, even pharmaceuticals – the intention is to do what works in a manner that best serves the patients health.

Naturopathic Medicine in practice is guided by Six Principles:

  1. First Do No Harm – Self explanatory and the goal of all good doctors.
  2. The Healing Power of Nature – Healing is not only available through using natural products, but also by tapping into our body’s self-healing ability.
  3. Find the Cause – Treating the cause removes the symptoms.
  4. Treat the Whole Person – All areas of a patient’s life, such as diet, lifestyle, mindset, and more, are used as tools to guide the healing process.
  5. Prevention – By maintaining healthy habits now, we will experience the lifelong joy of great health.
  6. Doctor as Teacher – The Doctor has a responsibility to educate the patient regarding their condition and their treatments. This results in involved, motivated patients willing to stay with their treatment program.
