What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct form of health care with an emphasis on prevention, treatment and optimal health guided by the use of therapeutic modalities which support the bodies innate ability towards self-healing.

Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine:

  • Vis Medicatrix Naturae (The Healing Power of Nature)
  • Docere (Doctor as Teacher)
  • Tolle Causam (Identify and Treat the Causes)
  • Primum Non Nocere (First Do No Harm)
  • Treat the whole person
  • Prevention

In conjunction with the Foundations of Naturopathic Medicine, a therapeutic order is incorporated in order to utilize the least invasive modalities first, while understanding that there is a time and a place for more invasive modalities as well.

  1. Re-establish basis of health
  2. Identify cause and remove the obstacles to cure
  3. Stimulate healing processes
  4. Support weakened or damaged systems/organs
  5. Restore structural integrity
  6. Address pathology
  7. Palliative treatment
