NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIAN'S OATH
I dedicate myself to the service of humanity as a practitioner of the art
and science of Naturopathic medicine.
I will honour my teachers and all who have preserved and developed this
knowledge and dedicate myself to supporting the growth and evolution of
Naturopathic medicine. I will endeavour to continually improve my abilities
as a healer through study, reflection and genuine concern for humanity. I
will impart knowledge of the advanced healing arts to dedicated colleagues
Through precept, lecture and example, I will assist and encourage others
to strengthen their health, reduce risks for disease and preserve the health
of our planet for ourselves, our families and future generations.
According to my best ability and judgment, I will use methods of treatment
which follow the principles of Naturopathic medicine:
- First of all, do no harm
- To act in cooperation with the Healing Power of Nature
- To address the fundamental causes of disease
- To heal the whole person through individualized treatment
- To teach the principles of healthy living and preventative medicine
I will conduct my life and the practice of Naturopathic health care with
vigilance, integrity and freedom from prejudice. I will abstain from
voluntary acts of injustice and corruption. I will keep confidential whatever
I am privileged to witness, whether professionally or privately that should
not be divulged.
With my whole heart, before this gathering of witnesses, as a Doctor of
Naturopathic Medicine, I pledge to remain true to this oath.
