What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a natural healing approach that uses various methods to heal and balance the body.
Naturopathy recognises that health is more than the absence of disease; it is dependent upon many factors.
It is a reflection of harmonious interaction with our environment.
Good health means to live life to your full potential, in body and mind.
The naturopathic approach aims to increase the ‘life force’ by supporting the body and mind.
For the body –
Keeping a healthy lifestyle is essential for a healthy body.
This includes good quality nutrition for optimum function, removal/avoidance of toxins, and being active with healthy movement.
For the mind –
Keeping a relaxed, positive state of mind by nourishing your spirit.
You can do this by reconnecting with your path and ‘detox’ unwanted thoughts, increasing mindfulness and flow of positivity to your life.
The primary principle of Naturopathy is the healing power of nature.
Diseases may occur as the body’s response to challenges in its internal or external environment.
Naturopathy focuses on education, prevention, and treatment of a person’s overall health and life quality.
The Naturopath first learns the patient’s medical history, lifestyle, nutrition and the reasons for imbalance in their life. Then, the Naturopath will draw a tailored treatment plan.
Naturopathy promotes a person’s healing by approaching the root cause of their health condition.
Naturopathy recommendations include
- nutritional supplements
- herbal medicines
- breathing techniques
- Bach flower remedies
- guided imagery

- lifestyle habits
Naturopathy treatment aims to improve the quality of life, overall health, physical and mental strength.
Naturopathic medicine principles teach us to trust the body’s internal wisdom to heal itself while looking beyond the symptoms to the search for the underlying cause.
This method suggests the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies.
Naturopathy continuously works with scientific advances and the methods chosen based individually on each person.
