Naturopathic Medicine uses science taught in traditional medical school along with a holistic approach to create an optimal healing process. Naturopathic physicians can diagnosis, perform laboratory testing, do nutritional counseling, botanical medicine, homeopathy, physical medicine, counseling, prescription medications, injection therapy, intravenous therapy, and minor surgery.


The Six Principals of Naturopathic Medicine:

  1.    The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
  2.     Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle Causam)
  3.     First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)
  4.     Doctor as Teacher (Docere)
  5.     Treat the Whole Person
  6.     Prevention


The healing power of nature consist of the idea that healing comes from the inside. The body is able to heal itself, but with the use of the earth’s sources the healing process can be more efficient, and more comfortable.


Naturopaths Identify and Treat the Cause by eliminating obstacles to cure and finding the root cause of the problem.
Naturopaths practice Do No Harm by using the least invasive treatments first, and using safe non-toxic treatments.
A naturopath always teaches their patients about their condition, and about what the patient can do to improve their health.
Naturopathic doctors treat the whole person by taking physical, mental, environmental, social, and spiritual health into concern.
Prevention is the best medicine to naturopaths. They educate their patients about how to prevent disease, and what the patient can do themselves.
