What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and cutting edge natural therapies to enhance their bodies’ ability to ward off and combat disease. NDs view the patient as a complex, interrelated system (a whole person). NYC Acupuncture and Naturopathy by Dr. Siminovich crafts comprehensive treatment plans that blend the best of modern medical science and traditional natural medical approaches to not only treat disease, but also to restore and maintain optimal health.
Naturopathic physicians base their practice on six timeless principles founded on medical tradition and scientific evidence.
- Let nature heal.
- Identify and treat the cause.
- First, do no harm.
- Educate patients, doctor as teacher.
- Treat the whole person.
- Prevent illness.
