Naturopathic Medicine is heir to the vitalistic tradition of medicine in the western world, emphasizing the treatment of disease through the stimulation, enhancement, and support of the inherent healing capacity of the person. Methods of treatments are chosen to work with the patien’ts vital force, respecting the intelligence of the natural healing process. Naturopathic principles of healing are based on the objective observation of the nature of health and disease, and are continually re-examined in light of scientific analysis.
