Our Philosophy: The 6 Guiding Principles Of Naturopathic Medicine
- Primum Non Nocere – First Do No Harm:
Naturopathic Medicine uses safe and effective therapies.
- Vis Medicatrix Naturae – The Healing Power of Nature:
The human body possesses the inherent ability to restore its own health. The physician’s role is to facilitate this with the aid of natural, non-toxic therapies.
- Tolle Causam – Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect:
Naturopathic Physicians seek and treat the underlying cause of a disease. Symptoms are viewed as the body’s natural attempt to heal. The origin of disease is removed, or treated, so the patient can recover.
- Tolle Totum – Treat the Whole Person:
Multiple factors in health and disease are considered while treating the whole person. Naturopathic Physicians provide flexible treatment programs to meet individual health needs.
- Docere – The Naturopathic Physician is a Teacher:
The Naturopathic Physician’s major role is to educate, empower, and motivate patients to take responsibility for their own health. Creating a healthy, cooperative relationship with the patient is therapeutically valuable.
- Principils Obsta: Sero Medicina Curator – Prevention is the Best Cure:
Naturopathic Physicians are specialists in prevention. They assess patient risk factors and heredity susceptibility, and intervene appropriately to reduce risk, and prevent illness.
Naturopathic Physicians are primary care doctors clinically trained in Natural Therapies. Their philosophy is derived, in part, from a Hippocratic teaching more than 2,000 years old: Vis mediatrix naturae…nature is the healer of all diseases. Their practice is based on the same, basic, bio-medical science foundation that allopathic medicine is. Their philosophies and approaches, though, differ considerably from their conventional counterparts.
Naturopathic Physicians diagnose and treat patients using natural methods including: Clinical Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Homeopathy, Acupressure, Oxygen Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Vitamin, Mineral, Nutraceutical and Enzyme supplementation. They choose treatment based on an individual, not on the generality of symptoms.
