Principles of Naturopathy

The Healing Power of Nature
Nature acts powerfully through healing mechanisms in the body and mind to maintain and restore health. Naturopathic doctors work to restore and support these inherent healing systems.

First Do No Harm
Naturopathic doctors prefer non- invasive treatments which minimize the risks of harmful side-effects. They use herbs and nutrients which have fewer side-effects than pharmaceutical drugs.

Find the Cause
Every illness has an underlying cause. A naturopathic doctor is trained to find and remove the cause of disease rather than just treat the symptoms.

Treat the Whole Person
Health or disease results from a complex interaction of mental, physical, emotional, environmental, dietary, genetic, lifestyle, and other factors. Naturopathic doctors treat the whole person, taking all factors into account.

Doctor as Teacher
Naturopathic doctors focus on education and encourage self-responsibility for health.

Preventive Medicine
The naturopathic doctor seeks to prevent minor illnesses from developing into chronic disease. Patients are taught the principles through which they can attain maximum health for themselves.
