Naturopathic Medicine

Primary Health Care

The Six Naturopathic Principles

Primum non nocere – First do no harm
Vis medicatrix naturae – The healing power of nature
Tolle causum – Identify and treat the cause
Docere – Doctor as teacher
Tolle totum – Treat the whole person
Praevenire – Prevention

Naturopathic Medicine uses these six principles in order to regain balance in one’s body. We work with various different treatment modalities, including botanical medicine, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, clinical nutrition, physical medicine, and homeopathy. Each of these modalities allows us to prescribe gentle yet effective medical treatments to help heal a patient without doing harm, the first naturopathic principle. We also enhance the body’s own ability to heal itself, working with the healing power of nature. We want to encourage the body to naturally heal and work through the disease process rather than suppress its healing ability. For us to establish what is needed for healing, we always take the time with our patients to identify and treat the cause. We want to know all your symptoms, as they are usually related and have a common cause. It is our job to identify the root cause and provide an appropriate treatment plan to eradicate any disease as well as strengthen your body to prevent any further disease. Not only will we prescribe an individualized treatment plan for you, we will also educate you so you can make the best decisions for your body. Education and prevention are two important components to living a long healthy life.
