Tolle Causum

Identify and Treat the Cause

​​The naturopathic physician seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely ameliorate or suppress symptoms. 

Primum Non Nocere

First Do No Harm

Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and augment the inherent self-healing process.

Docere

Doctor as Teacher

Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship.

Tolle Totem

Treat the Whole Person

Naturopathic physicians treat each patient as an individual by taking into account physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors.

Praevenire

Prevention

Naturopathic physicians emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.
