Naturopathic medicine is a comprehensive holistic health system that incorporates therapies from Traditional Chinese Medicine, ayurveda, homeo-pathy, western herbalism, as well as nutritional approaches, body therapies and other healing practices. Naturopathic medicine is based on five governing principles: the healing power of nature; treating the cause rather than the symptom; doing no harm; the physician as teacher; and prevention as the best cure. The practitioner considers the patient’s physical symptoms, diet, lifestyle, work, and personal characteristics when determining a treatment regimen. The goal of naturopathic treatment is physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
