Medically trained, naturally focused

 


 

Naturopathic doctors practice as primary care providers with an emphasis on disease prevention and optimizing wellness. They are guided by six fundamental healing principles:

•   First, to do no harm, by using methods and medicines that minimize the risk of harmful side effects.

•   To treat the causes of disease, by identifying and removing the underlying causes of illness, rather than suppressing symptoms.

•   To heal the whole person through individualized treatment, by understanding the unique physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors that contribute to illness, and customizing treatment protocols to the patient.

•   To teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine, by sharing knowledge with patients and encouraging individual responsibility for health.

•   To emphasize prevention, by partnering with the patient to assess risk factors and recommend appropriate naturopathic interventions to maintain health and prevent illness.

•   To support the healing power of the body, by recognizing and removing obstacles to the body’s inherent self-healing process.
