Naturopathy

Naturopathy is the basic foundation of what Functional Medicine is today. Founded with the philosophy and concept that there is an inherent healing power in nature and in every human being.

It is the practitioners role to bring out and or enhance this innate healing power within the patient by helping them to rebalance using a combination of lifestyle and diet changes, gentle herbal treatments, Eastern medicine healing techniques like acupuncture and more.

Naturopaths believe in the biochemical individuality of each person. Taking into account all aspects of that persons metabolic patterns that would lead to individualize, personalized, protocols for wellness.

Guiding Principles to Treat Patients Case-by-case

  • What is the first cause; what is contributing now; when was the last time you felt well?
  • How is the body trying to heal itself?
  • What is the minimum level of intervention needed to facilitate the healing process?
  • What is the underlying functional weakness?
  • What education to the patient is needed to their understanding of why they are sick and how they can be healthier?
  • How does their physical disease relate to their emotional, psychological, and spiritual health?

The Naturopathic view of illness is that it is not something that just “happens” to us, but rather the body’s way of communicating abnormalities, misfiring, disharmony, patterns of dis-ease or simply toxic overload. It is not enough to merely calm down a symptom, as the symptom is the communication, but find and treat the root cause of the symptom.
