Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is an alternative medical system based on natural remedies and the body’s innate ability to heal and maintain itself.  It has its origin the Nature Cure Movement of Europe. With its emphasis on safe and effective therapies, Naturopathic Medicine spread to North America and gained popularity as conventional medicine’s use of drugs and surgery peaked in the 1970’s, and has grown to be a vital part of our health care system ever since.

The practice of Naturopathic Medicine is based on six core values:

  • Do no harm. Naturopathic Medicine strives to provide the most effective health care available with the least risk to patients at all times.
  • Recognize, respect and promote the natural self healing power of the body. Naturopathic Medicine seeks to eliminate those things that block or inhibit the body’s innate and incredible ability to heal and maintain itself.
  • Identify and remove the causes of illness, rather than eliminate or suppress symptoms. Naturopathic Medicine believes that symptoms are the body’s way of asking for help with a deeper and more profound issue.
  • Educate and encourage self-responsibility for health. Naturopathic  Doctors engage and involve their patients in the healing and wellness process.  Naturopathic Medicine is not about a doctor treating a patient; rather it is about both doctor and patient working together in establishing good health and creating a plan for continued wellness.
  • Naturopathic Medicine treats the whole person. Each person is viewed as unique unto themselves, and all health factors and lifestyle influences are considered and addressed.
  • Emphasizes the condition of good health and wellness. Good health and wellness are not accidents, they are intentional, and Naturopathic Medicine concerns itself with the well being of individuals, communities and the world as a whole.
