Philosophy of Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention. It emphasizes a holistic, individualized approach to medicine that integrates traditional knowledge with current research. Naturopathic medicine works with the vis medicatrix naturae or healing power of nature to stimulate the body’s own innate ability to heal. The Latin word for doctor or “docere” also means teacher. Part of an ND’s role is to educate patients in the care of their own health. "Every patient carries her or his own doctor inside." Dr. Albert Schweitzer
