The Principles Which Guide Our Work
Our intention at Good Earth Naturopathic Centre is to encourage the health, well-being and evolution of each person on a physical, mental-emotional and spiritual level so that you may live a fulfilling and purposeful life.
With our work together, my intention is to help to restore the body to that state of health where it will respond to life in the best possible way, with vitality and resilience, maintaining a dynamic state of equilibrium.
I hope to instill in you a respect and awe for the impeccable workings of the body and of nature:
That you may begin to see the wisdom inherent in the processes and reactions of the body
That you will gain a respect for the workings of the body and learn how to best support these processes
That you will begin instinctively to do those things that support your state of health instead of suppress your vitality
Respect the Laws of Nature
Above All, Do No Harm
Treat the Cause
Treat the Whole Person
Naturopathic Doctors are guided by six principles that outline the naturopathic approach to health and healing and form the foundation of healthcare for each patient.
First Do No Harm
By utilizing procedures, remedies and therapies that are safe and effective, to increase your health and minimize harmful side effects.
The Healing Power of Nature
By restoring and supporting the powerful and inherent healing ability of your body, mind and spirit, and preventing further disease from occurring by recognizing and removing obstacles to health.
Identify and Treat the Cause
Through identifying and treating the underlying causes of disease rather than simply managing or suppressing the symptoms.
Treat the Whole Person
Through understanding the physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, spiritual and other factors that contribute to disease and creating unique treatment plans for each individual patient.
Doctor as Teacher
By educating patients on the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine, and empowering them to become more capable of maintaining their own health and well being.
Disease Prevention and Health Promotion
By partnering with patients to assess risk factors and recommending appropriate naturopathic interventions to promote health and prevent disease in a proactive manner as a team.
