Naturopathic Principles, Empowerment + Choosing Health

As naturopathic doctors, one of our foundational principles is “docere,” which translates as “doctor as teacher.” We believe in educating each person to know what is happening with their health and why we make the recommendations we make. Knowledge is power, and we seek to empower our patients to reach their health goals.

Here’s a visual of our naturopathic principles. Simply stated, this is powerful medicine.

Choosing to prioritize our health is a personal decision we each must make. It’s a choice that means being proactive, ready and willing. This choice will pull us through the changes and challenges along our individual paths to health. Making the choice – choosing greater health – is empowering in itself; this empowerment is essential.

My work as a naturopathic doctor is, in a sense, to manage, guide and facilitate this health journey for each individual, providing support and education for empowerment.
