About Naturopathic Medicine:
Naturopathic Medicine is an art and science blending the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to not only treat disease, but to also restore health.
Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) go to a post-baccalaureate 4-year accredited naturopathic medical school. The first 2 years, NDs learn all the same basic sciences and diagnostic skills as a conventional medical doctor in terms of subjects and hours of training. NDs learn the same medical sciences like anatomy, pathology, and biochemistry. NDs also learn to use the same labs, physical exams, and medical imaging that hospitals and clinics utilize to diagnose diseases and monitor health.
Naturopathic Doctor’s clinical training is spent in an outpatient setting, using natural treatments. These treatments include diet, nutritional supplements including vitamins, natural herbs and homeopathy, before resorting to drugs or surgeries. Drugs and surgeries are necessary, but NDs are trained to try all other less invasive therapies first.
The Six Principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
1. First Do No Harm: Use the least invasive therapy first.
2. The Vis Medicatrix Naturae: The human body has an innate ability to heal itself, the doctor is just the assistant, providing the natural tools for the body to do do.
3. Docere: The doctor must teach their patients to use diet, nutrition, homeopathy, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to help their patients eliminate disease and reach optimal health.
4. Find the Cause: Don’t not just treat the symptoms, but address the cause
5. Treat the Whole Person: A disease states has many factors; emotional, spiritual, mental, as well as Physical. Furthermore if there is a diseased organ, getting the whole body in shape will also help to heal the singular organ
6. Prevention: Preventing disease is a Naturopathic Doctor’s specialty for 1 ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
