The 6 Naturopathic Principles

First Do No Harm

Core to all medical practice is the desire to help the human form and condition. NDs typically approach care by utilizing the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies. NDs will refer when the patient’s presentation is outside their scope or level of skill.

The Healing Power of Nature

NDs recognize the value of our natural world in assisting the healing process. Not only do NDs utilize substances that originate in nature, but they also incorporate a healthy natural environment as foundational to human health. Naturopathic doctors recognize and harness the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself in order to guide patients to wellness and total health.

Identify and Treat the Causes

There is a time and place for symptom suppression, however most naturopathic patients will benefit from identifying the underlying causes of illness and removing obstacles to cure.

Doctor as Teacher

Naturopathic doctors elevate patient health literacy. That means that NDs are part of the team helping patients have a better understanding of what it takes to be and stay well. Through education and a trust-based relationship, patients better understand the steps they need to take to achieve and maintain health.

Treat the Whole Person

Naturopathic doctors understand the interconnectedness of our body, our environment and our lifestyle on total health. It is only through this whole-person-based approach that NDs seek to restore balance and health.

Prevention

Naturopathic medicine affirms that it is better to prevent illness and suffering whenever possible. Through their comprehensive practice, NDs combine all six principles in order to identify potential areas of imbalance and teach patients how to get well and stay well.

Investing in Your Health

One of the main hurdles for many people to see a naturopathic doctor is the perceived cost. Most people use health insurance when they see a doctor but Naturopathic doctors generally don’t take it. (or rather, the insurance companies don’t take us).


Insurance used to protect families from costly accidents and hospitalizations. Now it is involved in every aspect of our healthcare decisions. And it gives the illusion of low cost; thus, what we often get is low value.


You see, doctors are supposed to get you well, but most just treat symptoms. For the doctors, that approach just keeps you coming back because that makes you a revenue stream. Meanwhile, your unused insurance dollars pay for all the other (usually sicker) people on your health plan. Most likely you use a fraction of your health insurance while still paying copays and pharmaceutical costs… or worse, you avoid getting better because you’re avoiding proper care.


Our practice is cash pay. We make no apology for that – it is the true cost of medical care and services – and that’s actually very freeing for both of us. I actually want you well. That’s why it’s an investment, not an expense. My ideal patient gets well, comes back for an annual wellness exam and tells me how great they’re doing. That’s it. That really is the objective. Personally, I’d rather treat all your friends when they come to me because you’re bragging about how great you feel rather than continue to treat you unnecessarily to rake in some extra cash.


Done correctly your costs can be significantly lower than with traditional health insurance and medical care. Plus there’s the whole “actually solving your health problems” thing so you don’t have to keep spending.
