Naturopathic Doctors (N.D.'s) are licensed primary care health providers trained as general practitioners specializing in natural medicine.

Patients consult with N.D.'s for general health care, including acute and chronic disease, and for preventative medicine. They also consult when conventional medicine has not met their needs. N.D.'s also make referrals to other medical specialists as needed.

Naturopathic philosophy is founded on the concept that our bodies have the inherent ability to maintain and restore health. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system and is based on seven principles of healing. These seven principles are as follows:

  1. The Healing Power of Nature.
  2. First Do No Harm.
  3. Treat the Whole Person.
  4. Identify and Treat the Cause.
  5. Prevention is the Best Cure.
  6. Physician as Teacher.
  7. Establish Health and Wellness.
