Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that placed under the right circumstances, the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process.

Naturopathic medicine is a system of primary health care that emphasizes optimal wellness and health, disease prevention, and patient education. While in practice Naturopaths treat acute and chronic conditions, the primary focus of naturopathy being to support the body’s inherent healing abilities and empower the patient to make lifestyle changes necessary to maintain optimal health. Through in-depth history taking, physical examination, and clinical and laboratory evaluation, naturopaths uncover individual, familial and environmental risk factors, and strive to understand the patient as the totality of body, mind, and spirit.
