Dr. Emma's View on Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

The Healing Power of Nature

(Vix Medicatrix Naturae)

The body has a built in self-healing process (i.e. when you get a paper cut, most of the time it heals on its own). Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to health only intervening when needed.

Identify and Treat the Cause

(Tolle Causam)

To obtain optimal health, the underlying cause of disease or dysfunction must be identified and removed. I strive to provide lasting treatment and resolution of disease, suppressing symptoms only if needed.

First Do No Harm

(Primum Non Nocere)

This is universal throughout all fields of medicine. Naturopathic doctors use treatment methods that follow the therapeutic order, which minimizes side effects and uses the least force needed to treat.

Doctor as Teacher


My goal is to educate clients about their health and encourage self-responsibility. This allows me to EmPower you to be advocates for yourself and pass that knowledge onto others creating a health chain-reaction.

Treat the Whole Person

(Tolle Totum)

There is a connection between physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, spiritual, and other aspects of health and wellness. I take a holistic view of health/wellness and aim to treat as such.



The prevention of disease and maintenance of health is key. To do this I assess risk factors, heredity, and susceptibility to disease. From there I work with clients to make appropriate interventions to improve outcomes.
