What distinguishes Naturopathic physicians from our mainstream medical colleagues is our philosophy, not the therapies we use:

  • I focus on you as a whole, not the diagnosis
  • I give you a new process to engage in… the process of health; not medicines to defeat a disease entity
  • I see your diagnosis as a description of your symptoms, not the cause of them
  • I recognize you as the healer, not the victim
  • I give therapies that help you, not do it for you
  • I teach, ask questions, provide opportunities and support; you do the work and find the answers

Don’t explain your philosophy. Embody it.                                                    ~ Epictetus
