The 6 Naturopathic Principles
1. First do no harm
Providing effective health care using techniques and methods that minimize harmful effects.
2. The healing power of nature
Promoting self-healing power in each unique person by supporting the body's innate ability to heal and restore balance.
3. Identify and remove the cause
Rather than eliminating or suppressing symptoms, finding and removing the cause of disease or imbalance will have fewer harmful effects and prevent further complications.
4. Doctor as teacher
Naturopathic physicians work with and educate their patients inspiring rational hope and encourage self-responsibility for health.
5. Treat the whole person
All individual health factors including physical, biochemical, mental, emotional, and environmental influences are considered when treating each person.
Emphasizing the condition of health to promote well-being and to prevent disease for the individual.
