The healing power of nature



American Naturopathic
Medical Institute



The origin of naturopathy can be traced back to the ancient healing arts of a variety of cultures. Still, as a formal system of medicine and healing, it was developed in the United States nearly one hundred years ago by Benjamin Lust. To heal in harmony with the natural

functions of the body — without harm — is the underlying principle of the naturopathic system of medicine  The intent is to support the natural healing potential of the human body as validated by modern scientific research. It is this combination of the healing power of nature and scientific methods that makes naturopathic medicine an important system of medicine for today’s health care. Naturopathic medicine’s basic principles are:

1. Identify and Treat the Causes

2. First Do No Harm

3. Doctor as Teacher

4. Treat the whole person

5. Emphasize prevention

6. Support the healing power of the body



Naturopathic Medicine is a distinctively natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the integrity of the whole person. Naturopathic Medicine is heir to the vitalistic tradition of medicine in the Western world, emphasizing the treatment of disease through the stimulation, enhancement, and support of the inherent healing ability of the person. Methods of treatments are chosen to work with the patient's life force, respecting the intelligence of the natural healing process. The practice of Naturopathic Medicine emerges from six underlying principles of healing. These principles are based on the objective observation of the nature of health and disease, and are continually reexamined in light of scientific analysis. It is these principles that distinguish the profession from other medical approaches.
