Dr. Negin Misaghi, ND with you to total health. You are unique and as such your health and wellbeing requires an individualized approach. I recognize that, and from assessment to lab testing to personalized Comprehensive Health Plans my goal is to provide relief and address the root cause of your health concerns.
Naturopathic Doctors are guided by six basic principles:
First do no harm:
Primum No Nocere
By using methods and medicines that minimize the risk of harmful side effects. The process of healing includes the generation of symptoms which are an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself. Therefore, methods designed to suppress symptoms without removing the underlying causes are also considered harmful and to be avoided or minimized.
The healing power of nature:
Vis Medicatrix Naturae
The body has an inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent; nature heals through the response of the life force. The physician’s role is to facilitate this process, to identify and remove obstacles to health and recovery.
Identify and treat the cause:
Illness does not occur without cause. Underlying causes of disease must be discovered and removed or treated before a person can recover completely from illness. Causes may occur on many levels including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. The physician must evaluate fundamental underlying causes on all levels, directing treatment at root causes rather than at symptomatic expression.
Heal the whole person:
Individualized treatment: by understanding the unique physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental and social factors that contribute to illness, and customizing treatment protocols to the patient.
The physician as teacher:
The physician’s major role is to educate and encourage the patient to take responsibility for their own health. The physician is a catalyst for healthful change, empowering and motivating the patient to assume responsibility. It is the patient, not the doctor, who ultimately accomplishes healing. Teaching with hope, knowledge, and understanding, the physician acts to enable patients to heal.
Prevention is the best cure
This is accomplished through education and promotion of life-habits that create good health. Building health works better and more surely than fighting disease.
Illness does not appear suddenly. It develops from small daily sins against nature. When enough accumulate, illness appears.
Everything has its wonders, even darkness and silence, and I learn, whatever state I may be in, therein to be content.
~ Helen Keller
To keep the body in good health is a duty...otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.
It is within my power either to serve God or not to serve Him. Serving Him, I add to my own good and the good of the whole world. Not serving Him, I forfeit my own good and deprive the world of that good, which was in my power to create.
~ Leo Tolstoy
