The Therapeutic Order of Naturopathic Medicine
The first fundamental principle fo naturopathic medicine is 'First, Do No Harm' and I strictly abide by that.
A simple lifestyle change may be all that's needed to get well, and using a higher force intervention (herbs, drugs, surgery) may be harmful to the person. On the contrary, a higher force intervention may be needed i.e. emergency situations, where a lifestyle change is harmful as it doesn't serve the person's needs in the moment.
