Dr Della Parker_3 Things To Know About Naturopathy-4

You may know a few things about the practice of naturopathy, such as the primary tenant, heal with the power of nature. But the pillars of naturopathy go further beyond the scope of using natural resources to treat patients. Consider these fundamental principles of holistic care.

Doctor As Teacher

Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship.

Treat The Whole Person

Naturopathic physicians treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual development.


Naturopathic physicians emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.
