Our mission is to stimulate, support, and enhance the inherent healing systems of your body, to empower you to reach your optimal health, happiness, and longevity, so you can achieve your highest physical, mental, emotional and spiritual potential.
Hippocrates, the Father of medicine, taught that illness was the result of an imbalance of the body’s homeostatic and defense mechanisms. The natural state of the human organism is health. True healing comes through creating or restoring physical, biochemical, mental, emotional, and spiritual balance. Naturopathic Physicians still follow these principles:
- First, do no harm
- Treat the whole person
- Find the underlying cause of the disease
- Treat through the healing power of nature
- Teach patients how to attain and maintain optimal health
The purpose and objectives of the Hansen Clinic of Natural Medicine are:
- The prevention of illness, by assisting and strengthening the body's inherent abilities and natural defenses to resist and overcome disease
- The diagnosis of the weaknesses and imbalances, of all twelve major body systems in order to find the underlying causes of each patient's illnesses
- Comprehensive, individualized, and holistic healthcare that treats each patient as a unique, integrated whole
- The treatment of each patient with safe, effective, natural medicines and therapies that work in harmony with the body to gently yet powerfully stimulate or restore optimal health and wellbeing.
- To educate and assist each patient to attain his or her's ultimate potential and optimal level of physical, mental, and emotional health
Naturopathic Physicians still take the Hippocratic Oath, which states, in part, “I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice. I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asks for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect.” We will serve you with compassion, understanding, integrity and honesty. We will listen to you and your body. We will provide you with a comprehensive plan to get well, feel fantastic, prevent major chronic degenerative diseases, and teach, encourage and inspire you to achieve and maintain dynamic vitality and optimal health so that you can enjoy a long, joyful, positive and fulfilling life.
