OUR principles of Naturopathic Medicine

1. First Do No Harm

Assess the health of clients & determine whether they can effectively be treated naturopathically, or if a referral to another health care provider is more appropriate. Ensure that treatments are non-invasive & will cause no further harm.

2. The Healing Power of Nature

Given the correct nutrition and optimal conditions the body has an innate ability to restore health and heal itself.

3. Identify and Treat the Cause

Treat the underlying reason for the illness & symptoms as the symptoms are the external display of an internal imbalance.

4. Doctor as Teacher

Educate clients to take responsibility for their wellness and to get involved in creating their own health plan.

5. Treat The Whole Person

Optimal health is a complex interrelationship between physical, mental, emotional & spiritual aspects of an individual. When imbalance occurs with any of these, disease usually results.

6. Prevention is better than cure

Promote a strategy that helps to prevent illness from eventuating or becoming worse. Clients are involved in the process to promote optimal health and to reduce the risk of illness or injury.
