Naturopathic Medicine: Wellness

Naturopathic Medicine: Wellness

In celebration of Naturopathic Medicine Week I have created daily podcasts covering the Principles of Naturopathic Medicine with regard to how they shape my practice and benefit my clients.  Naturopathic Medicine: Wellness | HealthE Coaching Podcast


(Click Podcast above to listen in)

  • Wellness: Wellness follows the establishment and maintenance of optimum health and balance.  Wellness is a state of being healthy, characterized by positive emotion, thought and action.  Wellness is inherent in everyone, no matter what dis-ease(s) an individual might experience.  If wellness is truly recognized and nurtured within that individual, he/she will more quickly heal, as compared to their healing with direct treatment of the dis-ease alone.  (This principle was adopted by Bastyr University and added to the original six principles.)
