Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

Harness the Healing Power of Nature

Dr. Bernie Noe, NDThe naturopathic physician works to restore and support the powerful and inherent healing mechanisms of the body and mind. Naturopathic medicine harnesses the vast potential of the natural world to stimulate the process of healing.

Identify and Treat the Cause

The primary goal of the naturopathic physician is to determine and treat the underlying causes of illness, rather than only the symptoms.

Treat the Whole Person

The naturopathic physician treats the whole person, taking into account the complex interaction of physical, emotional, dietary, genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors.


The naturopathic physician provides the knowledge and tools to empower the individual to become responsible for his or her own health.

First Do No Harm

The naturopathic physician chooses the least invasive techniques with the least potential to cause harmful side effects.

Maintain Health

The naturopathic physician applies all of the above principles in a proactive form of prevention against the development of more serious chronic or degenerative diseases.
