This is the way I work as a Naturopathic Medical Doctor. The Therapeutic Order is a set of guidelines that allow me to resolve your symptoms and address the underlying cause while using the least force necessary. In the image, I start at the bottom of the triangle. First, I work on restoring the fundamentals of health like sleep, nutrition, water and elimination. Next is to stimulate the Vis Medicatrix Naturae which is the healing power of nature with things like acupuncture, homeopathy and hydrotherapy. Then we support the organs in their function and restore structural alignment with adjustments. Treating with herbs comes next. The most forceful treatments are the last treatments which are pharmaceutical drugs and surgery.
