Body Mind Soul
The tenets of osteopathic medicine provide the most appropriate clinical framework for us to carry out our calling, they include:
1 The body is a unit. It is comprised of a body, mind and soul.
2 Structure and Function are interrelated.
3 The body has self-healing, self-regulating systems.
