• Naturopathic Medicine

  • Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are primary care physicians just like Medical Doctors. NDs are licensed to diagnose and treat disease. Diagnosis may include history taking physical exams and laboratory testing. Treatment may include prescription drugs, minor surgery, botanical medicine, nutritional medicine, physical therapy and homeopathy.

    The goal of the naturopathic doctor is to identify and treat the cause of the patient's health issues.

  • Guiding Principles of Naturopathy

     

    1) First Do No Harm  

    Naturopathic medicine follows three principles to avoid harming the patient:

    1. utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects;
    2. avoid, when possible, the harmful suppression of symptoms;
    3. acknowledge and respect the individual's healing process, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat illness.

    Your naturopathic doctor chooses remedies and therapies that are safe and effective, to increase your health and decrease harmful side effects.

    2) The Healing Power of Nature 

    Your naturopathic doctor works to restore and support the powerful and inherent healing ability of your body, mind and spirit and to prevent further disease from occurring. Naturopathic doctors identify and remove obstacles to recovery, facilitating and augmenting this ordered and intelligent healing ability.

    3) Identify and Treat the Cause 

    The primary goal of your naturopathic doctor is to determine and treat the underlying cause rather than simply managing or suppressing the symptoms. The underlying cause may be due to diet, lifestyle habits, life events, posture, environment and genetics.

    4) Treat the Whole Person

    Each person is unique and requires individualized care. In treating the cause of any condition your naturopathic doctor takes into account not only your physical symptoms, but also mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, spiritual and other factors. Disease affects the entire person, not just a specific organ or system. Your nutritional status, hormones, lifestyle, family history, feelings, environmental stresses, and physical health, are all carefully evaluated and addressed.
