By Dr. Tamara Browne, Penticton, BC

Naturopathic Doctors: Who are they?

  • 4 year post graduate medical degree (7-8 years of higher education)

  • Same basic science education as MD’s

  • Use Natural therapies for treatment vs. synthetic medicine.


The Principles on Naturopathic Medicine:

  • The Healing Power of Nature

  • First do no harm

  • Find the cause

  • Treat the whole person

  • Preventive Medicine

  • Wellness

  • Doctor as Teacher


Steps towards prevention and longevity
A) Mind/Body /Spirit (Whole person)
Spirit: Optimism, healthy relationships, self knowledge, growth, development, remaining flexible and open. Celebration of life, individuality, diversity. Independent yet connected. Self-love and acceptance.
Mind: Calm, focused, aware. Space to think clearly. Understanding emotional influences / connections. Awareness of hidden/subconscious causes of ongoing stress such as childhood wounds, emotional suppression, fears, and anxieties. Being in charge. Stress reduction is critical to good health. Increase stress = faster aging.
Body: Feeding your physical needs: exercise, nutrition, fluid balance, assimilation and detoxification, touch, rest, stimulation, the five senses kept alive and invigorated.
B) To supplement or not to supplement?

  • condition dependent

  • lifestyle and diet dependent

  • lab assessment: Scientifically based labs test for toxicities, vitamin/mineral levels, heavy metals, allergies, viral/bacterial/yeast/parasite infections, and hormone levels. These tests help to pinpoint the problem and focus the treatment.
