is Naturopathic Medicine?
Medicine is a comprehensive approach to treating illness and preventing disease.
The philosophy of naturopathic medicine is based on the following principles:
Treat the cause, not merely the symptoms, of disease.
Treat the whole person and not their separate parts.
Naturopaths believe that in order to truly heal, the entire person must
be taken into consideration and cared for.
Doctor as teacher � Naturopaths are taught not only to heal but also to
teach patients how to heal and help themselves.
6) Prevention is the best treatment�naturopathic medicine includes a variety of techniques to prevent disease even the total absence of any symptoms or abnormal lab results.
