Collection: Naturopathy

NATUROPATHY is a distinct system of healing that aims to promote health by stimulating and supporting our body's innate ability to regain harmony and balance, is based upon three basic principles.

The first principle is that the body possesses the power to heal itself.  The naturopathic practitioner  creates the most favourable conditions to stimulate and enhance this healing power of nature.

The second principle is that symptoms are just a manifestation of our body's efforts to remove the causes of disease: e.g. bacteria, poisons, etc.  The naturopathic practitioner  seeks to discover and remove the root cause of disease, not simply to remove symptoms.

The third principle is that naturopathic medicine is a holistic approach to health. In other words, disease affects the whole person - body, mind and spirit, and not simply an isolated organ or system.
In treating the whole person the naturopathic practitioner searches for the causes of disease at many levels.
