This bizarre form of medicine is based on the crazy ideas that:
1) we should do no harm by using the gentlest, least invasive therapies.
2) the body has innate healing power
3) the best route to healing is to find the root cause of imbalance and remove or repair it.
4) that in order for healing to occur the whole person has to be considered- body, mind and spirit.
5) it is the doctor's obligation to teach the patient about their body and how to be healthy.
6) Prevention is the best cure.
