Philosophy

 

The goal of Aspen Creek Naturopathic Clinic is to provide clients with quality long lasting results instead of quick fixes.

 

Often as we age we encounter new diseases. Instead of treating each individual symptom, at Aspen Creek we try to treat the whole person so that the body slowly heals several of its problems at one time. This means that there should be a point at which these conditions go away, and stay away without needing continued supplementation or herbs. It is the difference between seeking symptom management and seeking a cure. All of our treatment plans have this idea in mind.

 

We do this by following the 6 principles of naturopathic medicine

  • The Healing Power of Nature
    The human body possesses the inherent ability to restore health. The physician's role is to facilitate this process with the aid of natural, nontoxic therapies.

  • Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect
    Physicians seek and treat the underlying cause of a disease. Symptoms are viewed as expressions of the body's natural attempt to heal. The origin of disease is removed or treated so the patient can recover.

  • First Do No Harm
    Naturopathic medicine uses therapies that are safe and effective.

  • Treat The Whole Person
    The multiple factors in health and disease are considered while treating the whole person. Physicians provide flexible treatment programs to meet individual health care needs.

  • The Physician is a Teacher
    The physician's major role is to educate, empower, and motivate patients to take responsibility for their own health. Creating a healthy cooperative relationship with the patient has a strong therapeutic value.

  • Prevention is the best "cure"
    Naturopathic physicians are preventive medicine specialists. Physicians assess patient risk factors and heredity susceptibility and intervene appropriately to reduce risk and prevent illness. Prevention of disease is best accomplished through education and a lifestyle that supports health.
