Naturopathic medicine recognizes an inherent self-healing process in people that is ordered and intelligent.
What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathic medicine is the practice of applying natural therapies. Naturpathic practitioners’ spectrum comprises far more than fasting, nutrition, water, and exercise; it includes approved natural healing practices such as Homeopathy, Acupuncture, and Herbal Medicine, as well as the use of modern methods like Bio-Resonance, Ozone-Therapy, and Colon Hydrotherapy. At a time when modern technology, environmental pollution, poor diet, and stress play a significant role in the degradation of health, a Naturopath’s ability to apply natural methods of healing is of considerable importance.
Frequently, a Naturopath is the last resort in a patient’s long search for health. Providing personalised care to each patient, the naturopath sees humankind as a holistic unity of body, mind, and spirit.
Some principles of Naturopathy:
The healing power of nature – nature has the innate ability to heal.
Identify and treat the cause – there is always an underlying cause, be it physical or emotional
Do no harm – a Naturopath will never use treatments that may create other conditions
Treat the whole person- when preparing a treatment plan, all aspects of a person’s being are taken into consideration
The Naturopath as a teacher – a Naturopath empowers the patient to take responsibility for his/her own health by teaching self-care
Prevention is better than cure – a Naturopath may remove toxic substances and situations from a patient’s lifestyle to prevent the onset of further disease
