Functional Medicine – The Naturopathic Principles

  • First, to do no harm, by using non-invasive and non-toxic therapies with minimal side effects.

  • To treat the causes of disease, by identifying and addressing the underlying causes of illness, rather than simply suppressing symptoms.

  • To teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine, through patient empowerment and education.

  • To support the healing power of the body, by removing obstacles to support the body’s inherent ability to heal.

  • To heal the whole person through individualized treatment, incorporating the physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors that contribute to a persons illness.
