   High blood pressure, high cholesterol, pain, infertility, & indigestion...these are just a few of the complaints that are all too common in today's world.  These like ALL other symptoms merely indicate that something is not correct in the body...these symptoms act like the check engine or low gas lights in your car alerting you to something... taking a medication, doing temporary therapy to make the symptom better, or hoping that maybe it'll go away is like putting black electrical tape over that light...your body is telling you to address something NOT cover it up!  

Most conventional doctors today seem to focus on just one symptom at a time and that has resulted in what we see today more sickness and more chronic're not just that one symptom and the body has to be looked at as a whole since it functions as a whole...your heart can only pump oxygenated blood with the help of the lungs...your lungs need your skin, muscles, and fascia to create a closed off space to allow the lungs to inflate...looking at just one piece makes you blind to the whole picture.  This is also true in the case where 10 individuals may have the same "label" but 10 very different journeys to getting there.

We all have "stressors" everyday to our bodies some known and some unknown but it's the cumulative effect of these that effect our health. We have "blissors" or the opposite of "stressors" which helps to counter these factors on our bodies and through either lifestyle modification, use of quality supplements, or physical medicine interventions we can begin tipping the scale in the other direction to get someone heading back into health...for more information                            . 

The following principles are the foundation of Naturopathic Medicine and are embraced at NDCIW as means to treat each patient with the care they deserve to make for the most rapid, gentle, and permanent return to health!


  • The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae): Recognize the inherent self-healing process in people that is ordered and intelligent. Act to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and augment this inherent self-healing process.

  • Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle Causam): Seek to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms. 

  • First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere): We follow three guidelines to avoid harming the patient:

    • Utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat; 

    • Avoid when possible the harmful suppression of symptoms; and

    • Acknowledge, respect, and work with individuals’ self-healing process. 

  • Doctor as Teacher (Docere):  Educate our patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. Also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship. 

  • Treat the Whole Person: Treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, we encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual development. 

  • Prevention: Emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.
