Naturopathic medicine is a unique system of medicine that aims to restore optimal health to an individual by following the six guiding principles of naturopathic medicine.
Primum no nocere– First, Do No Harm
The goal of the Naturopathic doctor is to facilitate healing in their patients using the most effective and least invasive methods available. Chosen therapies should be synergistic and complimentary to the bodyís own natural healing process.
Docere- The Doctor as a Teacher.
A good physician not only knows how to restore health, but can also motivate patients to be active participants in their own healthcare. At Longevity Medical our goal is to educate our patients about the best ways to address their health challenges and how to optimize their health. When patients have a good understanding of how they can play a role in improving their health, the motivation to do so comes naturally.
Tolle Causum– Identify and Treat the Cause of Disease
Symptoms are the result of the body attempting to heal itself. While symptomatic relief is often desired, true healing can only occur when the root cause of disease is identified and eliminated. Naturopathic doctors are specially trained to not only help their patients identify their risk factors and causes of disease, as well as the best ways to minimize and eliminate their effect.
Vix Medicatrix Naturae– The Healing Power of Nature
Our bodies have the ability to heal themselves. The role of the naturopathic doctor is to assist this process by identifying and removing any obstacles to health and healing.
Treating the Whole Person
In order for anyone to achieve truly good health every aspect of that personís being must be considered. The state of a personís physical, mental, social, emotional, environmental, and spiritual well being should all be considered. When a healthy balance is achieved in these areas the maintenance of health and prevention disease becomes easier.
The Power of Prevention
Naturopathic doctors believe that the best medicine is to prevent disease. Our physicians work closely with their patients to identify and eliminate any potential risk factors that may be present.
