Naturopathy

Naturopathic Medicine:
“In a word, Naturopathy stands for the reconciling, harmonizing and unifying of nature, humanity and God. Fundamentally therapeutic because individuals need healing; elementally educational because individuals need teaching; ultimately inspirational because individuals need empowering, it encompasses the realm of human progress and destiny.”
-Benedict Lust

Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that blends modern scientific knowledge and medical training with the ancient wisdom of natural healing. The guiding philosophy in Naturopathic Medicine is to treat the root cause of disease using safe and gentle therapies, which stimulate the body to begin healing.

The Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
• The Healing Power of Nature
This is the belief that all life contains a Vital Force that is ordered and intelligent and also has an inherent ability to maintain and restore health.

• Treat the Cause
Every illness has a cause, and by identifying and removing the cause, healing can occur. Naturopathic Doctors aim to treat the cause of illness rather than merely suppress the symptoms.

• First, Do No Harm
Minimizing harm involves using the least amount of force or intervention necessary to restore health.

• Doctor as Teacher
The role of the naturopathic doctor is to educate and empower patients while encouraging self-responsibility for health.

• Treat the Whole Person
Naturopaths recognize the importance of an individual’s physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health while taking into account the multiple factors in a person’s life that can lead to imbalance and illness.

• Prevention
Naturopaths aim to support wellness for individuals and their communities by monitoring risk factors and promoting healthy lifestyle habits.
