Our mission is to provide holistic natural health care focusing on the whole person. Our goals include empowering the patient through education. To this end, we believe in a therapeutic partnership between doctor and patient. We strive to promote balance, creativity, optimal health and wellness in the patient’s life on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms. We endeavor to honor each person’s uniqueness and to respect the healing power of nature by promoting the patient’s own natural healing abilities and by utilizing the healing properties of natural therapies. These therapies include Nutrition, Lifestyle counseling, Botanical (herbal) medicine, Acupuncture, Physical Medicine and Homeopathy. Combine and tailor these treatments to the needs of the individual in away that acknowledge the patient as a participant.
Our philosophy is based on the six principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
Vis medicatrix naturae
(The healing power of nature)
Wellness is an expression of equilibrium; nature abhors the instability of illness. The body has more innate healing power than all medicine in history. We call this power the life force, and foremost, we cultivate its restorative processes.
(Identify and treat the cause)
Symptoms are an expression of the life force, not the cause of illness. Rather than treat the symptom, we discover the cause, and direct our healing accordingly.
Primum non nocere
(First do no harm)
Naturopathy is complementary to and synergistic with the body’s own healing process. Our therapies fortify the immune system and are rarely invasive.
(Doctor as teacher)
We prefer to empower the patient with the tools and the responsibility for his or her own health. It is the patient, not the doctor, who ultimately expedites effective, long-term healing.
In pertuabato amino sicut in corpore sanitas esse non potest
(Treat the whole person)
Good health is the harmonious interrelation of physical, emotional, spiritual, environmental, social, and genetic factors. We treat the whole person, not just what ails you.
Pricipiis obsta: seromedicina curatur
(The ultimate goal: prevention)
We would rather maintain your good health than fight your disease. Thus, we work with you to create a healthy space for you to live in, and a healthy attitude to maintain it.
