What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine "Naturopathy" is a distinct system of primary health care that emphasizes prevention and the self-healing process through the use of natural therapies. ND's blend centuries-old knowledge and philosophy that nature is the most effective healer.

Naturopathic diagnosis focuses on identifying the underlying cause of disease, while naturopathic therapies integrate conventional, scientific, and empirical methodology with the ancient laws of nature.

The foundation of Naturopathic medicine is based on six principles:

  • First Do No Harm
  • The Healing Power of Nature
  • Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect
  • Treat the Whole Person
  • The Physician as Teacher
  • Prevention is the Best Cure
