This Oath is taken by all naturopathic students upon graduation from an accredited naturopathic medical program.
I dedicate myself to the service of humanity as a practitioner of the art and science of naturopathic medicine.
By precept, education and example, I will assist and encourage others to strengthen their health, reduce risks for disease, and preserve the health of our planet for ourselves and future generations. I will continually endeavour to improve my abilities. I will conduct my life and practice of naturopathic medicine with integrity and freedom from prejudice. I will keep confident what should not be divulged.
I will honour the principles of naturopathic medicine:
1. First, do no harm. Primum non nocere 2. Identify and treat the cause. Tolle causum 3. Work with the healing power of nature. Vis medicatrix naturae 4. Treat the whole person. Tolle totum 5. Doctor as teacher. Docere 6. Focus on prevention. Prevenio et evito aegresco
With my whole heart, before these witnesses, as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, I pledge to remain true to this oath.
