Philosophy

The philosophy of Naturopathic medicine differentiates me from a conventional physician and directs how I approach each patient. The goal is to support the wisdom of the body and to facilitate the body’s ability to heal itself.

The principles of naturopathic medicine are based on objective observation of the nature of health and disease. The principles, which are the foundation of naturopathic medicine, are:

  • The Healing Power of Nature - Vis Medicatrix Naturae
  • First do no harm
  • Find the Cause- Tolle Causum
  • Treat the whole person
  • Doctor as Teacher- Docere
  • Prevention
  • Wellness
