Naturopathic medicine is primary health care medicine, which blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. Living things have an innate ability to heal themselves; therefore, the naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the natural healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease.
Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental and lifestyle factors. The goal of Naturopathic medicine is to develop wellness for each patient, and to teach the principles of ideal health.
A number of therapies are utilized to help prevent and treat disease:
- Nutritional Counselling and Clinical Nutrition
- Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
- Botanical (Herbal) Medicine
- Lifestyle Counselling
- Physical Medicine
Naturopathic Medicine is also useful in conjunction with traditional medical treatment for most health conditions.
Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
- First, do no harm
- Act in co-operation with the healing powers of nature
- Address the fundamental cause of disease
- Heal the whole person through individualized treatment
- Teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine
