Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

Helping you feel

Together, we have a combined 40+ years experience helping people find their way towards better health.

First, Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)

Preference is always given to non-invasive treatments that minimize the risk of harmful side effects, always taking into account your short and long term health goals.

The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)

The body has intrinsic wisdom to heal itself, ward off disease and maintain homeostasis.  Symptoms are your body’s intelligent expressions, communicating which body systems are in need of support.

Identity and Treat the Cause (Tolle Causam)

Most illness is the result of long-standing dysfunction.  To achieve true healing, we must search for and attend to the deepest roots of imbalance.

Doctor as Teacher (Docere)

The doctor holds responsibility to educate, encourage and empower each individual to make daily choices congruent with health and well-being.

Treat the Whole (Tolle Totum)

The body is an intricate system of physical, emotional and spiritual interconnections, each of which must be addressed in your journey towards optimal health.

Prevention (Praevenic)

Preventive medicine centers around the affects of our daily choices on our health, the health of our communities, and the health of our planet.
