The 6 Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
Do No Harm
Naturopathic Doctors prefer noninvasive procedures which minimize the risks of harmful side effects. Combinations of herbs and nutrients have fewer side effects than most commonly used pharmaceutical drugs.
Find the Cause
Naturopathic Doctors are trained to identify and aid in the removal of the underlying cause of a disease rather than merely eliminating or suppressing the symptoms.
The Healing Power of Nature
Naturopathic Doctors strive to restore health by recommending nutritional supplements, herbs, dietary changes and detoxification methods which enhance the body's ability to heal itself.
Treat the Whole Person
When assisting our clients, Naturopathic Doctors take into account physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and other factors.
Doctors as Teachers of Preventive Medicine
Naturopathic Doctors teach their clients principles with which to live a healthy life. They focus on education and encourage self responsibility for one's own health and sense of well being.
