Our clinic was founded by a Naturopathic Doctor in 1998, who wanted to bring natural family medicine back to her home town. At Vashon Natural Medicine we work to apply Naturopathic philosophy to our practice:
- The Healing Power of Nature - Each individual has an inherent healing mechanism within the body that responds to heal itself, restore health and ward off disease.
- First Do No Harm - Utilize non-invasive and natural treatments to minimize the risk of harmful side-effects, yet recognizes the need for higher-level intervention when necessary.
- Identify and Treat The Cause - Work to find and treat the root cause of illness, not just the symptoms of disease.
- Treat The Whole Person - Illness is the result of a complex interaction of physical, mental, emotional, genetic and environmental and other causes. We focus on all aspects of an individual to find the cause of illness and develop an appropriate treatment.
- Doctor as Teacher - The original meaning of the word "doctor" was "teacher". NDs work to educate, empower, and motivate individuals to learn and take responsibility for their own health.
