PRINCIPLES OF NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE

First, do no harm

Primum Non Nocere

 

Naturopathic practitioners choose the most non-invasive and least toxic treatments for each patient.

 

The healing power of nature

Vis Medicatrix Naturae

 

Naturopathic practitioners recognize the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.

 

Identify and treat the causes

Tolle Causam

 

Naturopathic practitioners identify, address and remove the underlying causes of disease.

 

Doctor as Teacher

Docere

 

Educating and supporting patients on personal health management is an important role for naturopathic practitioners. They empower patients to take responsibility for their own health. They also acknowledge the therapeutic value inherent in the doctor-patient relationship.

 

Treat the whole person

Tolle Totum

 

This is a holistic concept that recognizes the body as an integrated whole. Naturopathic practitioners treat the patient, not the disease. A naturopathic assessment addresses the nutritional status, lifestyle, family history, physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors in a person’s life.
