LIVV Naturopathic Medicine | San Diego

Naturopathic Medicine has been practiced for over 100 years and is growing in popularity in individuals that are looking to optimize their health holistically. Naturopathic Medicine focuses on prevention and optimizing the patient's own inherent self-healing processes to fight disease. Naturopathic Medical Doctors graduate from 4-year accredited naturopathic medical programs and are licensed to practice Naturopathic Medicine after passing the Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX). Naturopathic Medicine uses many modalities, including botanical medicine (herbs), physical medicine (hands-on), homeopathic medicine (energetic), and scientifically-researched modalities (supplements, pharmaceuticals, and IV vitamin therapy). The key principles of Naturopathic Medicine are the prevention of disease, finding the root cause of disease, educating the patient, treating the whole person, doing no harm, and providing the body with the essential tools to cure disease (a holistic approach).

Naturopathic Medicine Principles

  • The Healing Power of Nature (Vis Medicatrix Naturae): Naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent self-healing process in people that is ordered and intelligent. Naturopathic physicians act to identify and remove obstacles to healing and recovery, and to facilitate and augment this inherent self-healing process.

  • Identify and Treat the Causes (Tolle Causam): The naturopathic physician seeks to identify and remove the underlying causes of illness rather than to merely eliminate or suppress symptoms. 

  • First Do No Harm (Primum Non Nocere): Naturopathic physicians follow three guidelines to avoid harming the patient:

    • Utilize methods and medicinal substances which minimize the risk of harmful side effects, using the least force necessary to diagnose and treat; 

    • Avoid when possible the harmful suppression of symptoms; and

    • Acknowledge, respect, and work with individuals’ self-healing process. 

  • Doctor as Teacher (Docere): Naturopathic physicians educate their patients and encourage self-responsibility for health. They also recognize and employ the therapeutic potential of the doctor-patient relationship. 

  • Treat the Whole Person: Naturopathic physicians treat each patient by taking into account individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, and other factors. Since total health also includes spiritual health, naturopathic physicians encourage individuals to pursue their personal spiritual development. 

  • Prevention: Naturopathic physicians emphasize the prevention of disease by assessing risk factors, heredity and susceptibility to disease, and by making appropriate interventions in partnership with their patients to prevent illness.

I went to visit Dr. Jason last week to get some blood work done and do an IV therapy session.
I have to say it’s one of the best things I’ve done. As a health coach it’s important to me to feel good. Dr. Jason helped me to go over my labs and establish a baseline so when I check in future months I can see how I’m doing. A lot of times we self medicate with supplements and things which I know form experience is not smart. I’m happy to have someone to bounce ideas off of and help me on my journey.
Also if you are in the area and can do an IV treatment, then do it! It’s a game changer....
Dr. Jason is honest, practical and well informed.
Thank you
