What is Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is a philosophy of medicine that recognizes the body's innate ability to heal. The job of the Naturopathic Doctor is to find the cause of the disease and remove it and then support the body's healing process.

6 Principles guide Naturopathic medicine:

  1.  First do no harm
  2.  The healing power of nature
  3.  Doctor is teacher
  4.  Treat the cause, not the symptoms
  5.  Treat the whole person
  6.  Prevention

Naturopathic Doctors are licensed doctors who perform primary care medicine. They diagnose and treat disease, perform physical exams, request lab work and write prescriptions as needed. Traditionally they treat patients using nutritional supplements, hydrotherapy, diet and lifestyle changes, homeopathy, Chinese medicine, and bodywork.
