About Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine operates on the practice of six basic principles:
- Primum non nocere – Above all, do no harm
- Vis medicatrix naturae – The healing power of nature
- Docere – Doctor as teacher
- Tolle causum – Treat the cause
- Tolle totem – Treat the whole
- Preventare – Prevention and wellness

As a naturopath, my goal is to prevent and treat the underlying causes of disease and to promote health and wellness.
As your doctor, I believe that my job is to educate you about how the body functions under normal circumstances, the ways in which it is affected by disease, and how to restore balance.
My role as an educator is to present your treatment options to you – including conventional medical treatment and natural therapies. With this information, we can work together to develop a treatment plan that will work for you. Your treatment plan will be multifaceted and tailored to fit your specific needs, preferences, and goals.
