All medical professionals take this oath upon graduating and naturopathic doctors are no exception! We strive to use interventions that are safe and effective but that do not suppress symptoms or produce side effects.
Utilize the healing power of nature
Naturopathic medicine believes in the inherent self-healing process. You have the power! Naturopathic doctors assist in removing obstacles to healing + recovery, and we use natural tools to help.
Treat the underlying cause of disease
Naturopathic medicine seeks to identify and understand the cause of an illness or disease, rather than simply eliminating the symptoms. That way, our treatment will address the root cause.
Treat the whole person
We strive to address ALL aspects of a person’s health: physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and spiritual.
Doctor as teacher
Naturopathic medicine emphasizes self-responsibility for health and educates patients on how to care for their bodies using nutrition, botanical medicine, movement, mindfulness, and sleep hygiene.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Enough said!
