A Naturopathic Doctor combines the art and science of medicine using natural therapies to stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal and restore health.
The aim of Naturopathic Doctors in both treatment and prevention is to address the cause of disease. By removing the cause, the most effective and long-lasting improvements in health can be achieved.
Naturopathic medical care adheres to the following guiding principles, which forms the foundation of effective health care practice:
First, Do No Harm—Safe and effective diagnostic techniques and treatments are provided to increase health and minimize harmful side effects.
The Healing Power of Nature—By removing obstacles to health, treatments aim to restore and support the body’s innate ability to heal and prevent disease.
Identify and Treat the Cause—The goal is to address the cause of ill health rather than suppressing symptoms.
Treat the Whole Person—An individualized diagnostic and treatment plan is devised taking into account the physical, mental and emotional factors of the whole person.
Doctor as Teacher—By supporting the patient–doctor relationship, the Naturopathic Doctor provides an understanding of the factors affecting your health and empowers you to take appropriate action.
Disease Prevention and Health Promotion—Through the use of all the Naturopathic principles, patients are guided to preventing disease, promoting overall health and improving quality of life.Make an Appointment
