Remember the Healing Power of Nature
The body has considerable power to heal itself. It is the role of the
physician or healer to facilitate and enhance this process, preferably
with the aid of natural, nontoxic therapies. Above all, the physician
or healer must do no harm.
View the Whole Person
An individual must be viewed as a whole composed of a complex interaction
of mind, body and spirit.
Identify and Treat the Cause
It is important to seek the underlying cause of a disease rather than
simply suppress the symptoms. Symptoms are expressions of the body's
attempt to heal, but causes can spring from physical, mental or emotional,
and spiritual levels.
The Physician is a Teacher
A Physician should be foremost a teacher, educating, empowering, and
motivating the patient to assume more personal responsibility for his
or her health by adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle, and diet.
Prevention is the Best Cure
Prevention of disease is best accomplished through dietary and life
habits that support health and prevent disease.
doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest his patient
in the care of the human frame, in diet and the cause and prevention
of disease." -Thomas Edison
