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 to utilize the least invasive modalities first, while understanding that there is a time and a place for more invasive treatments 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
