about naturopathy

Naturopathy is a holistic therapy which can treat a wide range of health problems with the use of whole and organic foods together with appropriate supplements and natural therapies.

 

Each person is treated very much as an individual, and each therapy is tailored to meet the needs of the individual rather than a set of symptoms.

 

The root cause of a problem is identified and then diet is used therapeutically to reverse the course of disease and thus bring the body back into balance and ultimately good health

In the field of naturopathy, there are several basic principles or oaths that a practitioner takes:

 

  1. To do no harm
  2. To provide the most effective health care available and to use the least invasive and toxic treatment available
  3. To recognise and respect the fact that the body has the innate ability to heal itself, by promoting the self- healing power of nature inherent in all of us
  4. To try and identify and remove the cause of illness, rather than eliminate or suppress the symptom
  5. To empower, educate and inspire the individual to take self-responsibility for their healing
  6. Treat the whole person, taking into consideration all health factors and influences
