Naturopathic Care to Promote Self-Healing of the Whole Person

What is Naturopathic Care?

Naturopathic care uses a variety of natural medicines and treatments to heal illness and improve health.  Naturopathy is founded on the concept that people are naturally healthy, and that the body has a strong ability to heal itself when obstacles to good health are removed.  The foundations of natural health are diet, nutrition, homeopathy, physical manipulation, stress management and exercise.

Naturopathic doctors (ND) are highly trained professionals, with a doctorate in naturopathic medicine and a license to practice issued by a state government agency.

Naturopathic physicians treat the whole person by getting to know their individual physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, genetic, environmental, social and other factors.

The Six Principals of Naturopathic Care

Naturopathic physicians practice six fundamental principles of naturopathic medicine.

  1. The Healing Power of Nature: Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.
  2. Identify and Treat the Causes: Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.
  3. First Do No Harm: Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.
  4. Doctor as Teacher: Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.
  5. Treat the Whole Person: View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.
  6. Prevention: Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.

Based upon what your doctor learns, a diagnosis and recommended course of treatment will be determined to match your specific needs.
