The 6 Principles of Naturopathy are the cornerstones of Naturopathic Medicine.
While there are variations of the 6 Naturopathic Principles in wording, they rely on the Naturopathic Doctor’s belief that nature is the best healer.
Naturopathic medicine is defined by principles rather than by methods or modalities. Above all, it honors the body’s innate wisdom to heal.
The 6 Naturopathic Principles in Latin:
- Primum non nocere
- Vis medicatrix naturae
- Tolle causam
- Tolle totum
