What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a distinct and complete system of health care. Six foundational principles underpin the practice of naturopathy:

  • The healing power of nature
    (Vis Medicatrix Naturae)
  • First do no harm
  • Find and treat the cause whenever possible, not only the symptoms (Tolle Causum)
  • Treat the whole person
  • Education
  • Prevention
These six principles are kept in mind when a naturopath takes your case, develops a treatment plan and also offers maintenance for long term good health. Naturopathy is both an art and a science. Naturopaths are prevention medicine specialists. Today naturopaths use scientific evidence as well as traditional evidence in their practice. More
