The practice of a Naturopathic Doctor is based on six guiding principles:

First Do No Harm (primum non nocere)
Naturopathic Doctors utilize diagnostic and treatment methods that pose the least amount of risk to the patient.

Treat the Whole Person with Individualized Care
Naturopathic doctors treat each individual by taking into account physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors. From the information obtained, a personalized treatment plan is created to treat the whole person.

The Healing Power of Nature (vis medicatrix naturae)
Naturopathic medicine recognizes the innate healing powers of the body. Naturopathic doctors act to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and increase this inherent self-healing process.

Emphasize Prevention
Naturopathic physicians emphasize disease prevention, assessment of risk factors to disease and making appropriate interventions to prevent illness. Naturopathic medicine strives to create a healthy world in which humanity may thrive.

Identify and Treat the Causes (tolle cosum)
The naturopathic doctor seeks to identify and to remove the underlying causes of illness, rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.

Doctor as Teacher (docere)
Naturopathic doctors share information and knowledge with their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health.
