The core principle guiding naturopathy is the healing power of nature: naturopathic medicine utilizes natural therapies to prevent and treat dis-ease. Naturopathic physicians believe that the body possesses innate healing mechanisms and that if supported sufficiently, these mechanisms can guide the patient back to health. Naturopathic physicians maximize this innate capacity to heal by stimulating physiological processes and using substances such as botanical and nutritional medicines to support a return to full functioning. As naturopathic medicine utilizes natural therapies to support healthy body processes, it is gentle and safe for the entire family.
In addition, our naturopath takes great care to treat the whole person—not just symptoms—creating an individualized treatment plan for each patient that takes into consideration personal and family history, lifestyle, and the most current diagnostic and functional tests. In this way, we are able to treat the true causes of disease and optimize the individual body’s ability to heal.
