is a simple yet complex natural approach to health and healing that takes into consideration the whole person, not just their symptoms. Naturopathic Medicine
emphasizes the treatment of the disease through the stimulation, enhancement , and support of the individuals own inherent healing capacity. The practice of Naturopathic Medicine
emerges from several underlying principles of healing, which have their roots in Indian (Ayurveda), Chinese (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Native American, and Greek Cultures. These principles are based on the objective observation of the nature of health and disease, and are continually reexamined.

changes so it can heal itself, and should not be suppressed. Removing the underlying cause of the disease is the correct approach. Suppressing symptoms is harmful and is to be avoided or minimized at
- Docere - The physician as a teacher. A healthy, sensitive relationship with the patient is of great
therapeutic value, with the physician acting as a catalyst to encourage the patient to take responsibility for their health. It is the patient, not the physician, who ultimately causes the

The ultimate goal of Naturopathic Medicine
is prevention. This is accomplished through education, promotion of lifestyle changes, and body therapies that lead to good health. The emphasis is on building health rather than on fighting disease.
