6 Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
Healing Power of Nature: Belief in the body’s unique ability to heal itself.
Do No Harm: Use of low force modalities that produce the largest changes with the least force or intervention necessary to both diagnose illness and restore wellness.
Prevention: Preventing disease through lifestyle and nutrition and using naturopathic therapeutics to prevent minor illnesses from developing into more serious diseases.
Find the Cause: Find and treat the cause of illness instead of just treating symptoms, and avoiding the suppression of symptoms as this can cause the underlying disease process to progress.
Treat the Whole Person: We treat the whole body instead of isolated symptoms
Doctor as Teacher: Only when you understand your body and its health can you make informed choices about your healthcare. So much of what we do is about educating you on what is going on with your body and what your treatment options. We also see that for us to understand what we are recommending for you we also need to have a commitment to living as an example. In other words we practice what we preach
