Naturopathic Principles

As a Naturopathic Physician, Dr.  Jiwani implements the fundamental naturopathic principles of Traditional Medicine using natural, non-toxic therapies to follow:


Naturopathic Principle: The Healing Power Of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)

The first of all naturopathic principles is that each person has the inherent ability to heal themselves. Dr. Jiwani supports this by identifying and removing any obstacles to healing and rejuvenation, enhancing the self-healing process with natural treatments.


Naturopathic Principle: First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere)

Dr. Jiwani works to diagnose and treat, using natural therapies and supplementation that minimizes the risk of detrimental side effects, avoids the suppression of symptoms, and respects the patient’s own ability to heal.


Naturopathic Principle: Identify And Treat The Cause(s) (Tolle Causam)

Dr. Jiwani uses her experience and education to target and address the underlying causes of patients’ symptoms, rather than just suppressing or eliminating symptoms.

Symptoms are there to remind you that something is wrong in your body and it needs to be fixed. It’s similar to if you put your hand on the stove and you feel pain.  You can take a painkiller or you can remove your hand from the stove.  Symptoms are critical to be mindful of, like warning signals, they are there for a reason.


Naturopathic Principle: Doctor As Teacher (Docere)

Dr. Jiwani has always taken patient education seriously, using various media forms to educate the public on the benefits of naturopathic medicine, and the importance of taking responsibility for one’s personal health.  She recognizes the therapeutic effect of the doctor-patient relationship, using it to motivate and guide patients towards better health.


Naturopathic Principle: Treat The Whole Person (Tolle Totum)

Dr. Jiwani evaluates multiple aspects of a patient’s health, including mental, emotional, genetic, social and environmental elements to determine an individualized naturopathic approach.


Naturopathic Principle: Prevention (Preventare)

As prevention is one of the key tenets of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Jiwani examines a patient’s various risk factors, vulnerability to disease and genetic influence to collaborate with patients for healthier modifications to treat and prevent disease.
