Naturopathy is a system of natural medicine which focuses on treating the underlying causes of disease by assessing and treating the patient as a whole. There is a strong focus on helping the body to return to optimum health via its own healing mechanisms. Within naturopathy, a modern scientific approach is applied alongside naturopathic principles, including the healing power of nature, to recognise the body’s capacity overcome disease.
Naturopathy involves extensive analysis to discover the underlying cause of a patient’s condition. This includes understanding a patient’s symptoms, emotional status, diet and lifestyle to treat the patient from a holistic perspective.
