What is Naturopathy?


Naturopathy is a system of natural medicine and holistic health care that focuses on an individual’s needs in order to achieve the best possible health outcomes. Naturopathic medicine has been around for a very long time and today it combines the best of two worlds, both modern scientific research and traditional teachings on diet, lifestyle, and herbal medicine. A naturopath’s job is to help your body heal itself.

One of the biggest keys to healing is knowing that your body can heal. So often we are told and hear from mainstream health care that once you have a health condition your stuck with it for life. From a naturopathic perspective this is not true. 

Sickness happens because we become unbalanced and it's our body's way of telling us there's something out of whack. Essentially all we have to do is to change the environment your body is in to one that supports good health and vitality not sickness.

Naturopathy is based on 7 principles

  1. First Do No Harm: Utilise the most natural, safe, least invasive, non-habit forming and least toxic therapies.

  2. The Healing Power of Nature: Trust in the body’s inherent wisdom to heal itself.

  3. Treat the Whole Person: View the body as an integrated whole in all its physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions.

  4. Identify and Treat the Causes: Look beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.

  5. Doctor as Teacher: Educate patients in the steps to achieving and maintaining health.

  6. Prevention: Focus on overall health, wellness and disease prevention.

  7. Wellness: A Naturopaths role is to help the patient establish and maintain optimum health and balance by promoting wellness. Wellness is inherent in everyone no matter what dis-ease(s) are being experienced.
