Primum non nocere
The first principle of Naturopathic Medicine is to Do No Harm. Exactly as it sounds, it is to treat the disease without causing harm to the body.
As Naturopathic Doctors, we are looking to find an individualized treatment plan for our patients. Whether this means supplementation, acupuncture, homeopathy, botanical medicine, IV therapy or physical medicine, we are doing it to treat the root cause of your concerns. We are not suppressing symptoms so they just “go away”, we are treating them so they stay away! We want to reduce your risk of disease.
We utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects. We work to avoid, when possible, the harmful suppression of symptoms. Rather than masking a symptom, we want to bring it out and fully understand what it is and where it came from!
We work towards acknowledging each individuals healing process and respecting their path, all while using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat illnesses. We use traditional medicine combined with scientific research to choose remedies and therapies to improve your health and avoid any harmful side effects.
