Naturopathic Medicine is individualized, holistic medicine aimed at finding and removing the cause of disease at the source, then working with the inherent healing powers of the body and nature to recover from illness and imbalance.
Although Naturopathy originated in the late 19th century, the art can be traced back through Germany into Greece, to Hippocrates himself, and even beyond. People always understood that healing occurs naturally in the human body, if it is given what it truly needs.
Today, naturopathic practice blends centuries-old knowledge of natural, nontoxic therapies with current advances in the field of health.
- The main guiding principles of naturopathic medicine are:
- First Do No Harm
- Recognize the healing power of Nature – Vis medicatrix naturae
- Finding and Removing the Cause of Disease
- Involve the total person
- Doctor as Teacher
- Prevent disease

Naturopathic medicine is not cookbook medicine; there is a great deal of evaluation, thought and detective work involved. We educate you to take an active role in the healing process. It is not suitable for the unmotivated individual, but for someone who wants to take an active role in their own healing journey. Your personal journey back to ‘optimum health’ is a step-by-step process and how it unfolds is unique to you. The modalities recommended as well as frequency and duration will vary based on your needs.
