NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE Naturopathic medicine as a safe and effective healing tradition dates back to the late 1800's. The treatment modalities include hydrotherapy, physical medicine, homeopathy, botanical medicines, clinical nutrition and lifestyle counseling, manipulation techniques, minor surgery, IV therapy, lab diagnosis and interpretation, male and female wellness examinations as well as some specialty areas.

Naturopathic medicine has a distinct philosophy of healing that sets it apart from other health care systems. This philosophy is based upon the following six basic principles of healing:
  • First do no harm
  • Harness the healing power of nature
  • Identify and treat the cause, do not band-aid
  • Treat the whole person and the person as a whole
  • Doctor as teacher
  • Prevention is the best medicine

These principles are not in themselves amazing nor profound, rather they are merely truths based on common sense and are essential for true healing.
