Naturopathy

Holistic Natural Alternative Medicine Approach
Naturopathic Medicine is a form of complementary and alternative medicine, which recognizes the inherent healing capacity within each individual and seeks to stimulate, enhance and support this innate ability in order to achieve optimal health and well being. Naturopathy is, by definition, patient-centered medicine. Therefore, the goal of the naturopath is to discover the underlying cause of illness, rather than merely focusing on the patient's symptoms or disease. The naturopathic physician practices holistic medicine; integrating mind and body to restore and maintain balance.

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

First Do No Harm: Primum No Nocere
Naturopathic medicine aims to work synergistically with the Healing Power of Nature (the vis mediatrix naturae). Any treatment, which does not address the underlying cause of symptoms, but rather merely suppresses them, is considered harmful since the symptoms generated by our bodies are in fact, a part of the healing process. Such suppressive therapies are minimized or avoided if at all possible.

The healing power of nature: Vis Mediatrix Naturae
Our bodies have an innate mechanism for maintaining and re-establishing health through a system, which is structured and intelligent. Naturopathic medicine aims to support this healing process through identifying and eliminating barriers to health and recovery and through restoring health to the interior and exterior environments of the individual. The naturopathic physician treats disease through the stimulation, increase, and support of the individual's inherent healing capacity.

Identify and treat the cause: Tolle Causam
Symptoms of illness are viewed not as the cause of disease, but as the expression of the body's attempt at self-healing and should therefore not be suppressed through medical treatment. Rather, complete recovery from illness depends on the discovery and removal of the true underlying cause of the disease in the individual. Naturopathic medicine aims to uncover underlying causes of disease at the physical, metal, emotional or spiritual levels in the patient and thereby restore health.

Heal the whole person: Tolle Totum
Naturopathic medicine views the individual as a complex and unique whole; made up of many interacting facets. All of these integral factors- spiritual, emotional, mental and physical- must be taken into account in the care of the individual. The naturopathic physician must seek to uncover each of these levels in the patient and to diagnose and treat in a manner, which is inclusive of all of them.

The physician as teacher: Docere
Naturopathy views the role of the physician as one of educator rather than paternalistic all-powerful figure of the past. The naturopathic doctor is a catalyst; encouraging the patient to make decisions which promote health and prevent disease. The naturopathic doctor-patient relationship is a therapeutic one in which the patient is empowered and motivated to assume ultimate responsibility for his/her own health.

Prevention: Prevention is the best cure
The fundamental goal of doctor-patient interaction is the pursuit of optimal health and not merely the treatment of disease once it arises. The naturopathic doctor educates the patient in making choices which promote health and prevent disease through assessing the individual's risk factors and circumstance and guiding the patient in building a healthful lifestyle and minimizing the risk of disease.
