Naturopathic Philosophy

The strength and uniqueness of naturopathic medicine is founded on six principles:

  1. Support the healing power of nature: The body has an incredible ability to heal itself when the obstacles to cure are removed and the optimal healing environment is provided.
  2. Identify and treat the causes: It’s better to diagnose and remove the underlying causes of illness than to just temporarily treat the symptoms of disease.
  3. First, do no harm: Safe, effective natural medicines are used that have a minimal risk of harmful side effects.
  4. Treat the whole person: To successfully treat the whole person, it’s necessary to consider all of the physical, mental, emotional and environmental factors that are contributing to the current state of health of the individual client.
  5. Emphasize prevention: Future illnesses can be prevented by carefully assessing current risk factors and making appropriate changes.
  6. Doctor as Teacher: Naturopaths openly share knowledge with their patients and encourage active participation in achieving optimal health goals.
