ABOUT NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE
PRINCIPLES OF NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE
1. First, Do No Harm (Primum non nocere)
Naturopathic doctors strive to provide the least invasive, most effective treatment.
2. The Healing Power of Nature (Vis medicatrix naturae)
Naturopathic doctors believe in the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.
3. Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle causam)
Instead of simply suppressing symptoms, naturopathic doctors identify and remove the root causes of disease.
4. Doctor as Teacher (Docere)
The relationship between naturopathic doctors and their patients is therapeutic, as patients are inspired and empowered to become leaders of their own health through education.
5. Treat the Whole Person (Tolle totum)
Naturopathic doctors use a holistic approach that not only addresses the physical, but also the mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, and social factors in an individual's life.
6. Prevention (Praevenic)
Naturopathic doctors focus on promoting overall health and wellness to prevent further diseases in the individual.
