How is the Naturopathic approach different?
Naturopathic Medicine is a newly re-acknowledged but timeless form of healthcare. It seeks to understand every unique individual as a whole, complex, and miraculous being.
Many patients use naturopathic medicine as their primary form of healthcare, while others choose to use it as a complementary therapy to conventional medical practices. Regardless of what part naturopathic medicine plays in a patient’s life, NDs see each person as unique and work diligently in a partnership with the patient to bring about the body’s innate healing abilities.
The principles that guide all Naturopathic Practitioners include:
First, Do No Harm
Treat the Cause
Treat the Whole Person
Focus on Prevention
Doctor is also Teacher
Recognize the Healing Power in Nature
