Naturopathic Principles of Medicine
By staying true to the philosophy of naturopathic medicine, we design an individualized health care program that will bring you to a place of optimal health:
First Do No Harm: Naturopaths prefer non-invasive treatments that minimize the risk of harmful side effects. We carefully consider how any medicine we prescribe may impact both your short and long term health goals.
Identify and Treat the Cause: At Bambú, we understand that chronic illness is the result of an often long-standing dysfunction. Therefore, we ask both patient and practitioner to be fully invested in the process of discovery that will ultimately reveal the deepest roots of imbalance. Only once the underlying cause of illness has been addressed can true healing be achieved.
Treat the Whole Person: The physicians at Bambú Clinic recognize that the body is an intricate system of interconnections. We find that healing occurs layer by layer, and thus must directly support the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of each person as they journey towards optimal health.
The Body Has Inherent Wisdom to Heal: Naturopathic physicians believe that the body has the ability to restore its own health when challenged. We believe that certain supportive interventions will set this healing process in motion. Others cover up symptoms and overpower this physiologic function. Symptoms, then, are the clues as to what supportive therapies are needed.
Doctor Means Teacher: The primary goal of the naturopathic physician is to practice, teach, and inspire patients to embrace the principles of healthy lifestyle choices, thereby establishing a strong foundation of health and balance. By cultivating a relationship and building trust with each patient, we are dedicated to guide you towards health, regardless of life’s challenges.
Prevention is Cure: The naturopathic approach to health care is aimed at preventing imbalances, which, when left unchecked, can eventually manifest as chronic, degenerative disease. Our practitioners teach ways of living that are most healthy and therefore most likely to prevent illness.
