Integrated Healthcare as Better Medicine

Naturopathic medicine

Naturopathic Doctors specialize in prevention and treatment of both acute and chronic illness using non-invasive treatment modalities and life management to create an individualized approach to healthcare. 
Naturopathic medicine addresses the causes of disease rather than merely masking symptoms.  
 
Patients are empowered to take responsibility for their own health by removing barriers in order to achieve a healthier lifestyle.
 
Ultimately, Naturopathic Medicine helps patients to achieve the level of health and wellness that allows them to get the most out of their life.
As a Doctor,
           it is my privilege to work
                           with you
  to reach your health goals.

The Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

 

First, Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)

Naturopathic Doctors utilize therapies that minimize the risk of harm and apply the least possible force to restore health.

 

The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)

Naturopathic Doctors recognize and support the inherent self-healing ability of the individual.

 

Identify and Treat the Cause (Tolle Causum)

Naturopathic Doctors seek to identify and treat the underlying causes of disease.

 

Doctor as Teacher (Docere)

The primary role of the Naturopathic Doctor is to educate and support each patient in taking responsibility for their health.

 

Treat the Whole Person

Naturopathic Doctors recognize that health results from a complex interaction of many factors and focus on treatment of the whole person through individualized care.

 

Focus on Prevention

A primary objective of the Naturopathic Doctor is the prevention of disease through encouraging a healthy lifestyle and controlling risk factors.
