Our guiding principles
First Do No Harm
Core to all medical practice is the desire to help and to heal. As Naturopathic doctors, we approach care by utilizing the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies first, only escalating therapeutic interventions when necessary.
The Healing Power of Nature
Naturopathic Physicians recognize and harness the body’s inherent capacity to heal itself. We also use nature and natural substances to aid in the healing process.
Doctor as Teacher
Naturopathic doctors elevate patient health literacy. Through education and a trust-based relationship, you will better understand what it takes to achieve and maintain health.
Treat the Whole Person
NDs understand the interconnectedness of your body, environment and lifestyle on total health. This whole-person approach enables NDs to support you in transforming and restoring your health.
Identify and Treat the Causes
We aim to identify the underlying causes of illness and remove the obstacles to healing.
Naturopathic medicine asserts it is better to prevent illness, rather than let early signs of dis-ease progress into chronic and complex illness. Our NDs will help you take a proactive approach to your health and wellbeing.
Naturopathic physicians rely on new and growing evidence that has been published in medical journals and peer reviewed. Though traditional knowledge is important, our naturopathic doctors use critical analysis of medical and botanical medicine literature to guide best practices and patient care.
