Dr. Rector has developed the following core beliefs about health:
1. The body has a self-healing capacity. At its optimum level, its power supersedes conventional medicine.
2. The majority of chronic illnesses in Western societies are preventable or minimized with non-drug approaches that include: nutritional therapy, exercise, environmental, relational, and spiritual health as well as maintaining a centered balanced lifestyle.
3. Our choices profoundly impact our well being; therefore, each person is their own most important "health care provider" by their own daily choices.
4. The physician's primary role is not only to identify disease but to search out the factors that lead to a loss of health. Then the physician is to teach and guide the patient how to live a healthy life and should strive to model these principles of wellness.
