What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care – an art, science, philosophy and practice of preventing, treating and determining the cause of disease. Naturopathic medicine’s techniques include modern, traditional, scientific and empirical methods.

Steeped in philosophy, Naturopathic medicine uses a unique lens from which the physician views the patient. Treatments are geared towards restoring a patient’s vitality and optimal function. The foundation of Naturopathic medicine revolves around the philosophy that the body has an innate wisdom and ability to heal itself when the cause or imbalance of any disease and obstacles that hinder the ability to heal are uncovered.

Principles Of Naturopathic Healing

There are six principles of healing that form the foundation for naturopathic medical practice. These include:

  • First Do No Harm
  • The Healing Power of Nature
  • Identify and Treat the Cause
  • Treat the Whole Person
  • Prevention is the Best Cure
  • Doctor as Teacher

Naturopathic Physicians are board certified Medical Doctors and are currently licensed to practice medicine as Primary Care Physicians in 19 states, District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
