Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is an integrative healthcare that focuses on healing you as a whole person, not just treating your symptoms. Naturopathic medical doctors combine using natural remedies and conventional medicine to help you achieve optimal health.

Emphasis is given to disease prevention and helping your body heal itself naturally. This is accomplished using the least invasive approach that includes dietary recommendations, natural-based healing, and addressing the whole human, body, mind, and spirit, to achieve overall wellness.

What’s an NMD or Naturopathic Medical Doctor?

Naturopathic medical doctors (NMDs) are educated and trained in four-year doctoral programs in naturopathic medicine at accredited universities. They diagnose, prevent, and treat acute and chronic illness by restoring and establishing optimal health, supporting their patients’ inherent self-healing process. NMDs work to identify underlying causes of illness and develop personalized treatment plans using natural therapies to address them.

The therapeutic modalities used in naturopathic medicine (including clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, and pharmacology) integrate conventional, scientific, and empirical methodology with the ancient laws of nature.

Founding Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

1. Vis Medicatrix Naturae: The healing power of nature.

Our bodies possess an inherent ability to heal themselves. With a personalized and integrated approach, we can support the body’s natural ability to heal using evidence-based solutions found in nature.

2. Prinum Non Nocere: First, do no harm.

As a physician, we follow three principles to avoid harming the patient:

    • Use methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects;
    • Avoid, when possible, the harmful suppression of symptoms;
    • Acknowledge and respect the individual’s healing process, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat illness.

3. Tolle Causum: Find and treat the cause.

Our priority is on identifying the underlying causes of an ailment. We take the time to investigate underlying issues rather than just suppressing symptoms with pharmaceuticals. This integrated approach to healthcare allows us to provide personalized recommendations and provide long-term resolutions to health concerns and chronic conditions.

4. Tolle Totum: Treat the whole person.

As practitioners, we take a holistic approach that looks at the complete picture of a patient’s health — physical, mental, and emotional — to offer a comprehensive treatment plan and counseling that fosters overall well-being and wellness. This personalized healthcare supports your needs as a wholly unique person.

5. Docere: Doctor as teacher.

We take on the role of educators, empowering their patients with the knowledge they need to take charge of their health. We recognize that this educational component encourages active participation in the healing process and helps patients make informed decisions about their lifestyle and needs.

6. Praevenire: Prevention.

We emphasize disease prevention and a lifestyle of prevention. This means that we assess risk factors and hereditary susceptibility to disease, so that we may suggest appropriate interventions to prevent diseases from developing. This forward-thinking approach is crucial to maintaining long-term health and vitality.
