Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine

Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine in New Westminster, Metro Vancouver, Canada | Institute

Welcome to the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine , New Westminster, Canada. Naturopathic medicine was established in North America in 1896 by Benedict Lust when he founded the first naturopathic college, the Yungborn Health Institute in New Jersey.

At the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine , New Westminster naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession founded on the time honoured belief in vis medicatrix naturae, "the healing power of nature." It is a holistic, coordinated approach to health care that respects the unique individuality of each person. The naturopathic physician attends to the prevention and treatment of disease and the promotion of optimal health. S/he views the patient as a whole person, while symptoms of disease are seen as indicators of improper functioning, imbalance and/or poor lifestyle habits. The goal of treatment at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine is to address the underlying cause of disease and to avoid treatments that might induce further harm, either by producing unwanted side-effects or by complicating the existing disease process. The naturopathic physician of tomorrow will have a truly caring nature and genuine desire to serve, will commit to the on-going practise of self-reflection and personal growth, and will have a passionate belief in the efficacy of complementary medicine.

The naturopathic physician will be a leader in a cultural transformation that adamantly rejects "living longer" via drugs, surgical interventions and scientific technology, without "living better". He/she will explore natural therapies, modalities and lifestyles that offer us a desirable and achievable quality of life. The value system of the physician of the future will recognise and validate the precious vulnerability of all patients as persons and cherish the inherent worth and dignity of our common humanity. He/she will be a visionary who knows we sometimes have to go back to our past and to nature, to the belief in the natural healing power of the body, mind and spirit, in order to go forward to optimal health and well-being.
