Modern naturopathic medicine takes advantage of modern medical advances while also including traditional and alternative therapies. If you're interested in a more traditional approach to healthcare, make an appointment with our Naturopath.
Naturopathic medicine emphasizes preventing disease and achieving optimal health by encouraging the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. The Western model of medicine generally is based on healing of disease. We treat the whole person and educate patients to be partners in their own health care to avoid disease.

6 PRINCIPLES of NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE
1. The Healing Power of Nature
The healing power of nature is the ability for the body to heal itself.
2. Identify the Cause
Naturopathic physicians evaluate aspects of lifestyle, diet, and habits of a patient in order to identify underlying cause of a disease.
3. First Do No Harm
Naturopathic physicians use methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful effects, preferring minimal intervention to diagnose illness and restore health.
4. Doctor as Teacher
Recognizing the value of the doctor-patient relationship, naturopathic physicians educate the patient and encourage self-responsibility for health.
5. Treat the Whole Person
Naturopathic physicians treat the whole person, recognizing the complex interaction of multiple factors, including mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, dietary, genetic, environmental, and lifestyle impacts.
6. Preventive Medicine
Naturopathic physicians emphasize disease prevention, using appropriate interventions to reduce risk factors and hereditary susceptibility to disease.
