Naturopathic Philosophy | Whitefish Montana

At the center of natural medicine rests the knowledge that the body is capable of healing itself of just about any ailment given the proper conditions. The job of the naturopathic doctor is to review the entire symptom picture, the history, diet, unique habits, living circumstances and disposition of each person in order to deliver the most expedient treatment for any given condition.
Naturopathic Doctors (ND’s) from accredited four-year medical school institutions are trained to be primary care physicians blending scientific knowledge and medical training with the healing power and wisdom of nature.  They are trained in all the same sciences, diagnostic techniques, and clinical skills as medical doctors with an emphasis on natural therapies.

Doctor means teacher. It is also the doctor’s job to help each person discover his or her own healthy balance, creating the proper environment for healing and continued vibrant health. The goal of natural medicine is not simply to palliate, although this may be a necessary step at certain times, but above all to discover where the imbalance that created the illness arose, so that the problem may be corrected and prevented in the future.

The truth is eloquently simple – clean air and water, good food, adequate rest, a balanced psyche, and correction of current and past insults to the body result in the restoration of health.
