To facilitate the body’s innate ability to heal itself is a principle of Naturopathic Medicine.
As Naturopathic Doctors (ND), we are taught to abide by the healing power of nature – vix medicatrix naturae. Under this understanding, Naturopathic Doctors use the therapies in our toolbox such as nutrition, vitamins, herbs, homeopathy, lifestyle counseling and manual therapies in addition to prescription medicine to manifest and augment the normal healing response of the body.
This promotes wellness, health, stamina, strength, beauty and vitality.
NDs also focus on removing obstacles to cure that impede the patient’s chance for wellness. This is why you’ll often leave your appointment with tools to remove irritants and heal your systems rather than with “bandaids” to suppress the symptom. Our goal is to allow your whole body to move itself back into a healthy balance.
A great example is when we detect and removed chronic hidden infections in the intestines and give soothing herbs to heal the inner layer of the digestive system.
We treat the root cause of your symptoms so the branches of health can bud then bloom.
