Naturopathic medicine is founded upon six principles:

First, Do No Harm (primum non nocere)

The Healing Power of Nature (vis medicatrix naturae)

Amazed by the engineering magnificence of the human body, Dr. Nguyen is impressed with each individual’s capacity to heal him/herself, given the right stimulus.  Treatments are directed at activating this innate healing mechanism. 

Discover and Treat the Cause (tolle causam)

Treat the Whole Person (tolle totum)

Dr. Nguyen takes into account the physical, emotional, biochemical, physiological, psychological, and environmental aspects of a person when approaching their health. She believes this is crucial in understanding her patients, their condition, and what is the best clinical approach to take.  This “WHOLE-istic” approach focuses on tackling the root cause of the illness.

The Physician as Teacher (docere)

Dr. Nguyen dedicates a lot of time with patients working through the what, why, how of their dis-eased states, so as to gain a better understanding of what needs to be done to achieve health.

Prevention is the best “cure” (praevenire)

Dr. Nguyen is committed to providing patients with the tools and information they need to be active and educated advocates for their own health
