Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is founded on the principle “Vis Medicatrix Naturae” – which means
“The Healing Power of Nature”.

Naturopathic Medicine uses natural methods and organic substances to support
and stimulate the body's inherent self-healing processes.

First Do No Harm - Primum Non Nocere
The philosophy of Naturopathic medicine is “First Do No Harm” – “Primum Non Nocere”

The safety of the client is the most important aspect of what we do and when possible avoid the harmful
suppressions of symptoms. We work with, not against the body’s natural healing tendencies in the
gentlest way possible.

Naturopathic Medicine approaches the person as a whole, placing equal importance on the person's
physical, mental and emotional components. It is the role of the practitioner, as well as the client to
remove any obstacles that may be hindering this healing power (such as poor diet, stress).


Identify and Treat the Cause;
- Find the Cause “Tolle Causam”
We do not get ill without a cause. Whether the cause of illness is emotional trauma, years of poor diet
and stress, physical injury, or something else, it is the role of the physician to assist the patient in
uncovering these contributory factors. It is essential to address these components because they are
the key to restoring balance and health to the individual.


Treat the Whole Person

Just as good health is the result of a combination of factors such as diet, genetics, lifestyle, exercise, spiritual and emotional fulfilment, the disease process has many components. In order to fully address and treat a person’s “dis-ease,” the whole person must be treated, not just the symptoms.


The Role of the Practitioner

The role of the naturopathic practitioner is not only to assist each patient on their journey towards the
restoration and maintenance of their health, but also to educate. Resulting treatments given by
a practitioner reaches beyond easing symptoms, and through natural methods, discovers their actual
cause. Treating the source produces a curative effect.


Prevention

The naturopathic approach to health care can prevent minor illnesses from developing into more serious
or chronic degenerative diseases. Clients are taught the principles with which to live a healthy life and,
by following these principles, they can prevent major illnesses. Prevention of disease is accomplished
through patient education, good nutrition along with a healthy, balanced lifestyle.


Optimal Health

Naturopaths are not satisfied with the absence of disease, but encourage people to optimize their health.
This often requires additional commitment to changing lifestyles and self-responsibility for health.
