Naturopathy uses five basic principles of healing. These principles  are thousands of years old.


  • First do no harm (primum no nocere)
  • Prevention (Preventue)
  • The Healing Power of Nature (vis Medicatrix Naturae)
  • Identify and treat the Cause (Tolle Causaum)
  • Treat the whole Person (TolleTotum)
  • Doctor as Teacher (Docere)


The approach to health and disease focuses on;
The restoration of health where health has deteriorated.
The Optimisation of health where good health prevails.
The prevention or slowing down of health deterioration.
