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.

Guiding Principle # 4
