Six principles guide shared decision making in Naturopathic medicine.
First, Do no Harm
Finding the least invasive, least toxic approach to restoring health. We use both conventional and evidence based alternative modalities.
Identify and Treat the Cause
There is a time and place for symptom suppression. However, most people will benefit from identifying the underlying causes of illness and removing obstacles to restoring health and vitality.
The Healing Power of Nature
Our bodies are designed to heal! This includes “food as medicine”, movement, rest and sleep, herbs, and much more. Working with nature and removing obstacles is part of the process.
Treat the Whole Person
In Naturopathic medicine, we understand the interconnectedness of our body, environment, relationships, and lifestyle on total health. It is through this whole-person-based approach that we seek to restore balance and health.
Doctor as Teacher
