Wellness is the goal

Healthiness is more than just the absence of disease. Optimum health entails daily functioning on the highest possible levels, and is characterized by positive emotions, thoughts and actions. The capacity for wellness is inherent in everyone.

The body heals itself

Nature acts in a powerful and profound manner through mental, spiritual and physical mechanisms to restore balance when sickness arrives. In a healthy person, balance is usually quickly restored. When the healing capacities of the body are compromised, help is needed. Naturopathic physicians use therapies to support the healing process, stimulate the body’s vital force and prevent further disease from occurring.

Each body is different

Each person is unique and requires individualized care. In developing a treatment plan to address the cause of any condition, we take into account more than a person’s specific physical symptoms. Disease affects the entire person, not just a specific organ or system. Thoughts, feelings, lifestyle, family history, environmental stresses, nutritional status and general physical state are all carefully evaluated.
