First Do No Harm
The guiding principle and core to all medical practice. Naturopathic physicians approach patient care by utilizing the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies. They refer to and work alongside other doctors and specialists to provide top-notch care, integrating all aspects of health to ensure patients reach their health goals!
The Healing Power of Nature
Yes, naturopathic doctors use substances from nature, but they also believe that the body has an inherent ability to heal itself on a cellular level, given the right circumstances. Naturopathic doctors will work with you to provide a healthy natural environment inside your body for an optimal foundation to health. Foundation is key!
Identify And Treat The Causes
Although there may be certain situations where symptom suppression can be helpful, naturopathic doctors get to know their patients as a whole and look for the root cause of illness in order to accurately treat the underlying cause and uncover obstacles to cure!
Doctor As Teacher
Naturopathic doctors understand that hard work and dedication are required for health. They will take time to explain your health to you and answer questions you may have. Naturopathic doctors are there to help guide you along your journey to wellness!
Treat The Whole Person
Naturopathic doctors understand the interconnectedness of the body and see it as more than just a sum of its parts. Naturopathic doctors also want to get to know YOU, because your mind and your emotions are key components in healing, too!
Naturopathic doctors believe prevention is the best medicine. We are here to help you achieve your health goals and educate you along the way!
