The 6 Core Principles of
Naturopathic Medicine

Today there are six major principles which define the Naturopathic approach to health care. Naturopathic Doctors apply these principles with every patient.

The Healing Power of Nature
The body's natural wisdom, its Vital Force, constantly works to restore health and balance to the human system.

First, Do No Harm
Naturopathic medicine seeks to avoid harm to patients by working in with the Vital Force rather than against it, and by utilizing natural healing modalities which minimize harmful side effects

Identify and Treat the Root Cause
Illness is the result of an imbalance to the Vital Force which can be caused by any combination of physical, mental, emotional or environmental factors. Naturopathic medicine, with its holistic approach to the patient, seeks to identify the true cause of illness.

Treat the Whole Person
People exist as a multi-dimensional entity, involving the physical, mental, emotional, energetic and spiritual planes of being. Additionally, each individual interacts with and is affected by their daily environment. All these areas must be addressed in any successful healing approach.

Doctor as a Teacher
Naturopathic doctors consider educating their patients to be a vital part of health restoration. The more you know about your condition and the methods used to treat it, the more like it is that will be successful in your healing programs.

Prevention is the best cure
Preventing serious, chronic disease is far easier than treating it. The core of Naturopathic treatment programs constitute a wholistic, natural lifestyle that will also help prevent illnesses in the future.
