6 principles of Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Physicians practice these six fundamental principles of naturopathic medicine:

  • Use The Healing Power of Nature –  Trusting in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.
  • Identify and Treat the Causes –  Looking beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.
  • Whatever you do, First Do No Harm  – Utilising the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.
  • The Naturopathic Doctor is a Teacher – Educating patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.
  • Treating the Whole Person – Viewing the body as an integrated whole in all its physical and spiritual dimensions.
  • We understand Prevention – Focussing on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.
