About the Medicine

Naturopathic medicine combines modern medical science with well-established natural therapies to create an effective approach to medical care.  Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) practice medicine with the belief that the body functions as an interconnected system, which has the innate ability to heal itself.  Naturopathic Physicians focus on diagnosing and treating the underlying cause of an individual’s illness and helping them restore optimum health.

The 6 principles of Naturopathic Medicine:

Primum Non Nocere ~ First do no harm. Utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.

Vis Mediatrix Naturae ~ The healing power of nature.  Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.

Tolle Causam ~ Identify and treat the cause.  Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.

Tolle Totum ~ Heal the whole person. View the body as an integrated whole in all of its dimentions.

Docere ~ The Physician as teacher. Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.

Prevention ~ Prevention is the best cure.  Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.

NDs attend a 4-year accredited medical school and must pass the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examination (NPLEX).  Naturopathic doctors are licensed on a state-by-state basis, please visit our licensure page for more information.
