Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic specialty care approach to health and wellness that focuses on the interconnectedness of the body, rather than disease itself. The goal is to find out the causes of illness, and how different systems in the body affect each other. Natural therapies are used to support the body on it’s own healing process.
The bedrock of Naturopathy is the health and well being of the individual. Naturopathic Doctors choose the most appropriate type of therapy or combination of therapies individualized for each different patient. Some of these include: nutrition, exercise, mind body medicine, lifestyle counseling, body work, herbs, nutritional supplements, enzyme therapy, amino acid therapy, homeopathy, and flower essences.
The following are important principles that we follow:
Primum non nocere (First do no harm)
Vis mediatrix Naturae (Healing power of nature)
Tolle Causum (Treat the Cause)
Tolle Totum (Heal the whole person)
Docere (Doctor as teacher)
