About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopaths’ teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance their bodies’ ability to ward off and combat disease. They view the patient as a complex, interrelated system (a whole person), not as a clogged artery or a tumor. Naturopaths’ craft comprehensive treatment plans that blend the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to not only treat disease, but to also restore health.

Naturopathic Principles: Naturopathic Physicians practice the six fundamental principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

1-The healing power of nature: Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.

2-Identify and treat the causes: Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.

3-First do no harm: Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.

4-Naturopaths as teacher: Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.

5-Treat the whole person: View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.

6-Prevention: Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.

Naturopaths’ strive to make naturopathic medicine available to everyone, and to increase recognition of Naturopaths as the identified authorities on natural medicine.
