Learn more about our philosophy and approach below…
Naturopathic Medicine, also known as Functional Medicine, is a more Integrative, Holistic approach to your health and well being. The modalities and tools used are a blend of traditional and modern medicine practices that are non-invasive, safe, science based, and highly effective. It is distinguished by the principles upon which its practice is based:
- Vis Medicatrix Naturae – the healing power of nature? – Naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent self-healing process that is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic doctors act to identify and remove the obstacles to healing and recovery.
- Tolle Causam – identify and treat the cause – The Naturopathic doctor seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.
- Primum Non Nocere – first do no harm – The Naturopathic doctor utilizes methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects; avoid when possible the harmful suppression of symptoms; and acknowledge, respect, and work harmoniously with the unique and individualized healing process of each person.
- Docere – doctor as teacher – Naturopathic doctors educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health, vitality, and well being through optimal diet and lifestyle.
- Treat the Whole Person – Naturopathic medicine recognizes the harmonious functioning of all aspects of the individual as being essential to health. Naturopathic doctors spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease.
- Prevention – Naturopathic doctors assess risk factors, hereditary and susceptibility to disease, and make appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.
As owner and founder of Naturae’s Path, I have always had a true love and respect for the wisdom and healing power of nature. As a naturopathic doctor I have dedicated my life to utilizing nature’s wisdom and rejuvenating abilities in my practice and in my personal life. Each client of Naturae’s Path will experience their own unique blend of the natural medicine based modalities we use: botanical or plant-based medicines, nutraceuticals (pharmaceutical grade nutrients), bio-identical hormone balancing (including thyroid, adrenal, and male/female hormones), homeopathic medicines, and lifestyle/dietary interventions. I dedicate my practice to all of you who are looking to find and follow your inner Vis Medicatrix Naturae as you navigate your personal path towards optimal health, fitness, and vitality.
Sincerely – Michael D Brown, ND
