What is Naturopathic Medicine?
At the core of naturopathic philosophy is the belief that human beings have an innate ability to heal, provided that the obstacles to cure are identified and removed. Our objective is to support those we work with in identifying unique obstacles to good health to take action to restore balance and wellness.
There are six principles that serve as the foundation of naturopathic medicine:
First Do No Harm – primum non-nocere
The Healing Power of Nature – vis medicatrix naturae
Discover and Treat the Cause of Disease – tolle causam
Treat the Whole Person – tolle totum
Doctor as Teacher – docere
Prevention is the best “cure”
We combine the best of both natural and conventional medicine strategies to get the to root cause of illness and to restore harmony to the body. We spend a great deal of time gathering details about your past and current medical history so that we can navigate a path forward to great health.
Our treatment plans typically include nutritional plans to support health, lifestyle counseling including movement and stress reduction, herbal medicines, nutrient support, and (when necessary) pharmaceutical treatments.
