A Naturopathic Doctor practices naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic medicine helps the sick to rebuild their bodies to heal itself. Naturopathic medicine includes medical and natural healing.The following principles are the foundation of naturopathic medical practice:
Naturopathic medicine assists the body to unleash its inherent self-healing processes like the Immune System and the rebuilding of the entire body.
Naturopathic Physicians use processes that avoid harming the patient and avoid foods that have harmful side effects.
Naturopathic Physicians also acknowledge, respect, and work with each individuals’ self-healing processes.
They also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship.
Naturopathic Physicians treat each patient by taking into account individual holistic physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors.
Finally, Naturopathic Physicians emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.
