"The physician should not treat the disease but the patient who is suffering from it"

- Maimonides

Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic doctors are trained as primary care providers.

Meaning we observe, recognize and treat as front-line health care workers. Our approach to health care differs; we view ourselves as educators and motivators. We assess the big picture – viewing how everything is related and what needs to be addressed. We believe our patients – and we want you to feel engaged, enlightened and empowered.

On your journey to optimal health an account of not only physical but also mental, spiritual and emotional factors are taken into account.

Naturopaths strive to find the underlying cause of disease, not merely the symptoms that are making life uncomfortable. Your health is important, and we want to help you on your journey to well-living. Our treatments are geared toward restoring balance, and promoting the body’s natural abilities to heal.

Naturopathic Physician’s Oath

I dedicate myself to the service of humanity as a practitioner of the art and science of Naturopathic medicine. I will honour my teachers and all who have preserved and developed this knowledge and dedicate myself to supporting the growth and evolution of Naturopathic medicine. I will endeavour to continually improve my abilities as a healer through study, reflection and genuine concern for humanity. I will impart knowledge of the advanced healing arts to dedicated colleagues and students. Through precept, lecture and example, I will assist and encourage others to strengthen their health, reduce risks for disease and preserve the health of our planet for ourselves, our families and future generations.

According to my best ability and judgment, I will use methods of treatment which follow the principles of Naturopathic medicine:

  • First of all, do no harm
  • To act in cooperation with the Healing Power of Nature
  • To address the fundamental causes of disease
  • To heal the whole person through individualized treatment
  • To teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine

I will conduct my life and the practice of Naturopathic health care with vigilance, integrity and freedom from prejudice. I will abstain from voluntary acts of injustice and corruption. I will keep confidential whatever I am privileged to witness, whether professionally or privately that should not be divulged.

With my whole heart, before this gathering of witnesses, as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, I pledge to remain true to this oath.
