What is Naturopathy?

 

Naturopathy is a therapeutic approach with a holistic perspective on health and disease.

In its core lies the principle that the body possess inner healing abilities.

Naturopathy is based on the principle of treating the whole person not just the disease or its symptoms.

Practitioner and patient are working together to uncover the CAUSES for the disease and establish balance in the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the individual’s health.

The naturopath uses modalities which are as close as possible to what Mother Nature provides.
