Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
First, Do No Harm
Naturopathic Doctors and most, if not all Health Care Professionals abide by this first principle.
To Co-operate With The Healing Powers Of Nature
Our bodies have a natural ability to heal. When we get sick, our immune systems get activated in order to help us mount a response against the bacteria or viruses in our system. When we cut ourselves, our skin heals on its own. Sometimes, however, our own natural healing abilities are ‘blocked’ and our bodies need a little guidance in order to help unblock the healing channel. Naturopathic Doctors understand and work with our natural healing abilities in order to achieve and maintain optimal health.
To Address the Fundamental Cause of Disease
Naturopathic Medicine aims to find the Root Cause of your condition rather than use a ‘symptom-based’ approach. There are situations where the symptoms do need to be managed (i.e. pain) while we search for the fundamental cause of the condition. However, a Naturopathic approach to health and healing looks to discover Why you are experiencing your condition so that we can remove the cause and thus remove the condition. Simply addressing the symptoms only masks the true cause of the disease. Find the cause, cure the disease.
To Heal the Whole Person Through Individualized Treatment
Every patient exhibits signs and symptoms of their condition in a unique and personal way. Some migraine sufferers experience no pain but just vision disturbances, whereas others cannot even stand the light because of the excruciating pain. Some of us experience colds mainly in the head and sinuses, and some of us almost always feel it in the chest and throat. Most, if not all conditions are affected not only by the physical world, but by our minds and our emotions as well, and we take all of that, mind, body and soul, into consideration. Naturopathic Doctors recognize that like the characteristics in our personality that make us individuals, the way we express our illness is also unique to each of us, which is why we cater each and every treatment plan to You.
