Naturopathic Principles:

Naturopathy originates from the 19th Century European expression “Nature Cure” and refers to an entire system of holistic health care which incorporates numerous natural therapies in order to restore health to the patient. The system of naturopathy is described by six core principles which practitioners adhere to at all times. There are many versions and re-phrasings of the six values but essentially they all have the same meaning and are as follows:

  1. The healing power of nature- Although it is not obvious to us as city dwellers there is truth in that we are nature, and nature is within us. As such, we have within us an innate, or inner, ability to self correct in heal and self correct. Natuorpathic medicine recognizes, respects, and promotes this truth with each and every patient.

  2. Identify and treat the cause- It is important that the underlying cause, whether physical or emotional, is identified and removed as opposed to just simply suppressing the symptoms.

  3. Do no harm- A Naturopathic Doctor strives to provide the most gentle, natural, health care system. He/she uses the least invasive and least toxic therapies possible.

  4. Treat the whole person- Every aspect of a person's being must be taken into account when preparing a treatment plan, the physical, mental and emotional aspects as well as individual health factors and influences must all be considered.

  5. The physician as teacher- A Naturopath must encourage their patient to gain control and take responsibility for his or her own health by teaching them self care methods.

  6. Prevention is better than cure – This value really speaks for itself and your naturopath will work with you to hopefully not only rid you of your current ailment but also to remove any toxic substances and situations to prevent the onset of further disease in the future.

Naturopathic Customer-Care:

Naturopathic health practitioners strive to provide personal care to each and every one of their patients believing that every individual is unique and people are genetically, biochemically, structurally and emotionally different from one another. Each person responds in a unique way to influences whether they are mental/emotional, structural, nutritional, social or cultural.

Plant-Based Whole Foods:

Whole Food, Plant Based promotes a lifestyle centered on the nurition of whole foods, plants, and personal choice of proteins. The lifestyle approach is to holisiticly promote eating habits that sustain the mind, body, spirit connection of the individual.

  1. Emphasizes whole, minimally processed foods.

  2. Limits or avoids animal products.

  3. Focuses on plants, including vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, seeds and nuts, which should make up the majority of what you eat.

  4. Excludes refined foods, like added sugars, white flour and processed oils.

  5. Pays special attention to food quality, with many proponents of the WFPB diet promoting locally sourced, organic food whenever possible.

Intuitive and Shamanic Core Principles:

Not a religion, Shamanism is a deeply spiritual and intuitive wellness lifestyle practice centered on Indigenous teaching, which was the original "doctoring" practice of Humanity. Today there are health approaches to utilze Shamanic Healing as an integrative therapy or technique used all over the planet to interact with everyday occurences in the world and its energies on a fundamental and personal level, giving the Shamanic Practitioner a deep, rich, direct experience of the divine.

Universal beliefs that are part of most of the shamanism-like practices of the world, which are;

  1. Everything, all matter is alive; life practice of "wellness"

  2. Everything is aware; life practice of "empowerment"

  3. Everything grows and transforms; life practice of "healing"

  4. Everything is connected; life practice of "mindfulness"

  5. Everything communicates and responds; life practice of "gratitude"

Shamanic Approaches to Customer Care:

Shamanic healers master the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels of being. In their role as shamanic healers, many practitioners of shamanism are accomplished at restoring the fabric of a client’s soul or spirit, a transpersonal healing modality.
