What is Naturopathic Medicine
 
Naturopathic Medicine is a practice of medicine that combines ancient wisdom with contemporary knowledge about the human body, about disease, and about health and well-being.
 
Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
 
Naturopathic medicine is defined by its fundamental principles of:
  • First, do no harm 
  • Work with the healing power of nature 
  • Treat the cause 
  • Treat the whole person 
  • Doctor as teacher 
  • Prevention
 
Doctors of Naturopathic Medicine treat the individual, not the disease, attempting to find the underlying cause of the patient's condition, and using therapies that work with the healing power of nature, to assist in bringing that person back to a state of balance and equilibrium.
 
Naturopathic doctors spend extended time with each patient in order to teach the patient more about self-care, as well as ways of preventing chronic diseases.
