Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes treating the cause of the illness rather than just the symptoms. With this focus, symptoms are not simply suppressed; instead, their origin is determined and treated. This initiates a path to long-term improvement of health and well-being.
The principles of Naturopathic Medicine are:
First, do no harm.
Act in co-operation with the healing power of nature.
Address the fundamental causes of disease.
Heal the whole person through individualized treatment.
Teach the principles of healthy living and preventive medicine.
