First, Do No Harm | Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
Our first principle, just like in allopathic medicine is TO DO NO HARM. For NDs this rings a bit differently, however.
While we don't want to do any harm, ever, we believe that treatment should begin with the least invasive and least toxic options available.
We call this a therapeutic order and it accounts for many of our modalities (types of treatments) and allows for appropriate resolution of complaints while also staying true to the principles of naturopathic medicine!
