Six Guiding Principles
Guiding Principle # 3
First do no harm
Viz Primum no Nocere:
Illiness is a purposeful process
of the organism. The process of healing includes the generation
of symptoms which are, in fact, an expression of the life
force attempting to heal itself. Therapeutic actions should
be complimentary to and synergistic with this healing process.
The physician's actions can support or antagonize the actions
of he viz medicatrix naturae. Therefore, methods designed
to supress symptoms without removing underlying causes are
considered harmful and are avoided or minimized.
