Naturopathy aims to restore vitality through supporting and stimulating the body’s own healing mechanisms. Naturopathy today occupies an important and prominent role in the contemporary health-care system with a rich history dating back thousands of years. Health, from a naturopathic perspective, involves the capacity to maintain optimal order and function of the body (homeostasis) and is an outcome of a healthy mind, body, spirit and environment. A modern scientific approach is applied with the ‘power of nature’ to recognise the ability of the body to overcome disease.
