Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine delivers gentle and natural treatments that reflect these six fundamental principles:


The Healing Power of Nature

To trust in the body’s innate wisdom to heal itself


Identify and Treat the Causes

To look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause


First Do No Harm

To utilize the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies


Doctor as Teacher

To educate and empower patients in the steps to restoring and maintaining health


Treat the Whole Person

To view the body and mind as an integrated whole



To focus on sustainable health and disease prevention
