What is Naturopathy ?
Naturopathy is based on the philosophy of the “healing power of nature”, which is the belief that the body has the ability to heal itself from illness. Naturopathic treatment allows the body to function at optimal level by facilitating its innate healing powers.
Naturopathy practices a holistic approach to health, which focuses on all aspects of wellness because the client is treated as a “whole” individual. This includes assessing a client’s lifestyle, mental, psychological and emotional factors, diet, environment and inherited characteristics.
Naturopathy values preventing, finding and addressing the underlying cause of disease for long-term health benefits. Naturopaths strive to educate, empower and motivate their clients to build a lifestyle that supports wellness.
