Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession, emphasizing prevention, treatment, and optimalhealth through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.
The following principles are the foundation of naturopathic medical practice:
