About Naturopathic Medicine
Naturopathic medicine is a truly holistic approach to health, combining ancient healing traditions and modern scientific knowledge to address all aspects of an individual: mind, body, and spirit. Naturopathic physicians have tremendous respect for the body’s innate wisdom and healing abilities.
Our work with patients is guided by the six principles of Naturopathic Medicine:
- First Do No Harm
- The Healing Power of Nature
- Treat the Whole Person
- Identify and Treat the Cause of Disease
- Doctor As Teacher
A Naturopathic physician has graduated from a four-year naturopathic program at an accredited naturopathic medical school and also holds a bachelor’s degree. Naturopaths are licensed as primary care physicians in Oregon, allowing us to provide care for the whole family. Our approach to treating disease and supporting optimal health entails the use of nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, massage, lifestyle counseling, and more. While not typically the first approach to treatment, naturopathic physicians can prescribe most medications if the need for one arises. We spend a minimum of one hour with each patient, taking the time to get know you so we may best meet your unique health care needs.
