Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

žNaturopathic medicine blends centuries-old natural, non-toxic therapies with current advances in the study of health and human systems, covering all aspects of family health from prenatal to geriatric care.

žNaturopathic medicine concentrates on whole-patient wellness; the medicine is tailored to the patient and emphasizes prevention and self-care.

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

 ž  First Do No Harm - primum non nocere

 ž  The Healing Power of Nature - vis medicatrix naturae

 ž  Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect - tolle causam

 ž  Treat the Whole Person - tolle totum

 ž  The Physician is a Teacher - docere

 ž  Prevention is the best “cure” - praevenire

Scope of Practice:

             ž     Botanical Medicine
              Acute and chronic treatment, immune support, non-toxic substitute for 
              medication

 ž                   Homeopathic Medicine
              This natural health system, developed by Samuel Hahnemann in the 1840s,
