Naturopathic doctors often have success treating chronic symptoms which have not responded to conventional medical approaches. The practitioners at Integrative Family Wellness Center take the time to listen, answer your questions, and create a treatment plan focusing on the person, not the problem.
Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine has six fundamental principles defining the practice and profession:
The Healing Power of Nature
Your body has inherent wisdom and a natural healing process.
Identify & Treat the Causes
Look beyond symptoms to find and treat the underlying cause of illness.
First Do No Harm
Avoid treatments with harmful side effects and use the most natural, least toxic effective therapies.
Doctor as Teacher
Educate and empower patients to achieve and maintain optimal health.
Treat the Whole Person
Know and heal the patient as an integrated being with physical, mental, and spiritual dimensions.
Focus on preventing disease and maintaining wellness through individual evaluation and proactive healthcare strategies.
Above all, naturopathic medicine studies and honors the body’s ability to heal itself and treats medical conditions by stimulating and supporting each patient’s innate healing capacity.
What to Expect from a Naturopathic Approach to Health Care
Naturopathic treatment plans are uniquely tailored to each individual and designed to encourage a patient’s active participation in his or her healthcare. At Integrative Family Wellness Center, you and everyone in your family will be listened to and treated with compassion and respect.
