WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE:
Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic form of medical care that combines current medical research with historical herbal and nutritional wisdom. Naturopathic doctors are trained as primary care providers in many different areas including botanical medicine, nutrition, acupuncture, and lifestyle counseling among other modalities. Naturopathic doctors strive to adhere closely to their six tenets:
The Healing Power of Nature
The goal of naturopathic medicine is to allow the body to do the healing and to help remove any obstacles that may be inhibiting the healing process. The body has an innate ability to heal itself and we focus our treatments around amplifying the body's ability to self-heal.
Identify and Treat the Cause
Naturopaths often describe themselves as "medical detectives" - we aren't concerned with individual symptoms, but rather how the individual symptoms piece together. Our goal is determine the root cause of any disease and not to treat symptomatically or suppress the symptoms.
First Do No Harm
Simply stated, our effort will be to use the least invasive measure to acquire the greatest results. Our practice is to avoid the harmful suppression of symptoms while at the same time using modalities with the least number of side effects.
Doctor as Teacher
Naturopathic doctors place significant importance upon teaching patients how to be responsible for their health. It's important for our patients to understand how we approach treatment and to guide to become more empowered in controlling and optimizing their health.
Treat the Whole Person
Naturopathic doctors take into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social aspects of health among other factors when treating patients.
The assessment of risk factors including environmental, genetic and dietary will be essential in the prevention of disease and are always included when visiting a naturopathic doctor.
