Naturopathic medicine is a holistic approach to healthcare that emphasizes prevention, natural therapies, and the body’s innate ability to heal itself. We use cutting-edge diagnostic tools, such as functional testing, advanced neuroimaging, and a comprehensive wellness assessment to discover all the roots that are contributing to your symptoms/illness. Our Naturopathic Doctors then use a variety of interventions, such as herbal medicine/supplementation, personalized nutrition, lifestyle counseling, constitutional hydrotherapy, and more to address these roots, balance the various body systems, and promote overall wellness.
Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
Naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent self-healing process in people that is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic physicians 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)
The naturopathic physician seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms.
First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)
Naturopathic physicians 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)
Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship.
Treat the Whole Person
Naturopathic physicians treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual development.
Naturopathic physicians 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.

Rooted in Tradition

A Holistic Approach
Naturopathic medicine takes a comprehensive approach to healthcare that focuses on treating the whole person, not just the symptoms. Our doctors address the underlying causes of illness and work with patients to develop personalized treatment plans.
GROUNDED IN SCIENCE
Our doctors use evidence-based treatments that have been proven effective through scientific research and clinical experience. They have extensive training and experience in the safe and effective use of natural remedies to promote healing and wellness.
The neurogrove approach
At NeuroGrove, we believe you are a unique individual who deserves a treatment plan as unique as you are. Starting with a comprehensive assessment, we review your personal history and medical records and conduct any additional relevant functional medicine testing.
From there, we work collaboratively with you to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses systemic imbalances and the identified root causes of your symptoms. We deeply trust the body’s natural healing abilities, especially when given what it needs, so we pull from a diverse set of empirically-supported modalities to support that healing process and prevent future imbalances and ailments. Using this integrative approach to healthcare, we can effectively and naturally address a variety of conditions and treat the whole system and whole person.
