Naturopathic medicine (Naturopathy) - Ethnoscience Glossary Terms and Abbreviations

Naturopathic medicine is a comprehensive holistic health system that incorporates therapies from traditional Chinese medicine, Aryuvedic, Homeopathy, Western herbalism, as well as nutritional approaches, body therapies and other healing practices.
Naturopathy is based on six governing principles:
  • First do no harm (Primum Non Nocere)
  • The healing power of nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
  • Identify and treat the cause (Tolle Causam)
  • Treat the whole person
  • Doctor as teacher (Docere)
  • Disease prevention and health promotion

The practitioner or naturopathic physician considers the patient's physical symptoms, diet, lifestyle, work, and personal characteristics when determining a treatment regimen. The goal of naturopathic treatment is physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.
