Dr. Martin firmly believes in the six principals of naturopathic medicine:
- First Do No Harm – primum non nocere
- Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect – tolle causam
- Treat the Whole Person – tolle totum
- The Physician is a Teacher – docere
- Prevention is the best “cure” – praevenire
- The Healing Power of Nature – vis medicatrix naturae
Dr. Martin uses these six principals as well as the safest and least invasive treatments possible.
She listens to all of her patients, and works with them to create unique comprehensive treatment plans specific to their lifestyle needs.
