What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care – an art, science, philosophy and practice of preventing, treating and determining the cause of disease. Naturopathic medicine’s techniques include modern, traditional, scientific and empirical methods.
Steeped in philosophy, Naturopathic medicine uses a unique lens from which the physician views the patient. Treatments are geared towards restoring a patient’s vitality and optimal function. The foundation of Naturopathic medicine revolves around the philosophy that the body has an innate wisdom and ability to heal itself when the cause or imbalance of any disease and obstacles that hinder the ability to heal are uncovered.
Principles Of Naturopathic Healing
There are six principles of healing that form the foundation for naturopathic medical practice. These include:
First Do No Harm – Primum Non Nocere
The Healing Power of Nature – Vis Medicatrix Naturae
Identify and Treat the Cause – Tolle Causam
Treat the Whole Person
Prevention is the Best Cure
