Naturopathic Medicine is a natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the integrity of the whole person and our ability as human beings to heal. Naturopathic physicians are doctors who specialize in natural, holistic and/or alternative medicine. We are licensed by the State of Connecticut to diagnose and treat medical conditions. We are trained to identify and remove causes of a disease and treat patients using natural, non-toxic therapies to not only resolve your problems, but also to maximize your health. Treatments are chosen to work with the patient's vital force, respecting the natural healing processes of nature.
Naturopathic medicine is committed to first do no harm, Primum Non Nocere, and relies on non-invasive treatments to work with the body and minimize the risks of harmful side-effects.
As the underlying cause of illness is often found in aspects of lifestyle or diet, it is often necessary to identify and remove the cause(s), Tolle Causam, for healing to occur.
Nature acts powerfully through healing mechanisms in the body and mind to maintain and restore health, and we strive to work in harmony with the healing powers of nature, Vis Medicatrix Naturae.
Health or disease comes from complex interactions of physical, emotional, genetic, social and environmental factors, requiring the physician to treat the whole person, Tolle Totumn.
With the physician as teacher, Doceer, patients learn principles that promote health and prevent the recurrence or progress of disease. Building health works better and more surely than fighting disease.
