Naturopathic Medicine
by John Ruhland, ND

Naturopathic Medicine is a comprehensive body of knowledge derived from both the latest scientific understanding of the human body, as well as from very long-standing traditional systems of healing. Over thousands of years, successful treatments have been improved, and unsuccessful treatments have been discontinued. Naturopathy blends the experience of thousands of years, current science, and the art of healing.

Principles

First, do no harm.
Treat the whole person.
Identify and treat the cause of illness.
Remove obstacles to healing and health, and allow the healing power of nature to act.
The word doctor means teacher; the physician should educate the patient and emphasize self-responsibility.
Education of Naturopaths

Naturopathic physicians are trained as general medical practitioners with the ability to provide comprehensive primary care. Naturopathic universities are four-year postgraduate schools which train students in the medical sciences including immunology, pharmacology, cardiology, dermatology, neurology, gynecology, rheumatology, gastroenterology, psychology, oncology, clinical nutrition and physical and clinical diagnosis.

Naturopathic education includes two years of clinical training, and additional training in specialized natural therapies including:

homeopathy
botanical medicine
therapeutic nutrition
counseling
stress management
hydrotherapy
soft-tissue therapies
