Identify and Treat the Causes – identify and remove the underlying causes of illness, rather than eliminate or merely suppress symptoms. First Do No Harm – Use methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects; Avoid the harmful suppression of symptoms; Acknowledge and respect the individual’s healing process using the least force necessary.
Doctor as Teacher – educate the patient and encourage self-responsibility for health. Treat the Whole Person – treat each individual by taking into account physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors. Prevention – emphasize disease prevention, assessment of risk factors and hereditary susceptibility to disease and making appropriate interventions to prevent illness.
