Understanding Naturopathic Medicine
The philosophy of naturopathic medicine is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. The medicine itself is a primary care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional forms of medicine. With the ability to treat both acute and chronic conditions, therapies are chosen accordingly to support the individual needs of the patient.
First do no harm - utilize therapies that do not bring further harm
The Healing Power of Nature - support the body's inherent wisdom to heal itself
Identify and treat the cause - seek for the underlying cause rather than managing symptoms
Treat the whole person - view the body as a whole in all of its dimensions
Doctor as Teacher - educate our patients to understand their bodies and choose treatments that are best for them
Disease Prevention - taking a holistic approach and achieving well-balanced lifestyle choices, will facilitate in decreasing the chances of disease
