patient care and public education.

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

1. Primum non nocere - do no harm, effective care with the least risk for all patients;
2. Vis medicatrix naturae - healing power of nature, respect and promote self healing;
3. Tolle causum - Treat the cause, identify and remove causes, avoid suppression of symptoms;
4. Docere - doctor as teacher, educate patients, inspire rational hopes, encourage self responsibility;
5. Treat the whole person - each person is unique with their own factors effecting their health;
6. Health promotion is the best prevention - well-being includes health individually, in the community and globally.
