Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathy is a form of alternative medicine, based on the idea that the body has an innate capacity to heal itself.  Naturopaths improve health and treat illness by treating each person holistically, tapping a person's own internal body, mind and spirit resources. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care-an art, science and practice of preventing, diagnosing and treating conditions of the human mind and body.

Naturopathy uses a blend of different therapies, all in order to restore the body's health in the most natural, non-invasive way possible by stimulating the body's own healing power.

Naturopathic doctors  use 6 principles:

 

1. Nature has the power to heal

2. Treat the cause, not the effect

3. Treat the whole person

4. Do no harm

5. Encourage prevention

6. Act as a teacher
