What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to health care that emphasizes the body’s ability to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians (N.D.’s) use natural therapies to treat acute and chronic conditions. Naturopaths select the most gentle and non-invasive intervention possible to restore the body to balance. This could include changes to diet, appropriate exercise, exposure to natural daylight, and natural supplements. Emotional issues may also be addressed using counseling or relaxation techniques such as meditation. A key goal of naturopathic medicine is to educate the patient, so they can take responsibility for their health and prevent future diseases.

Naturopathic medicine is based on the following six principles:

  • Do No Harm: They use the most natural, least invasive, and least toxic therapies to treat patients.
  • The Healing Power of Nature: Naturopathic physicians believe that the body has an innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathic treatment works to support and stimulate this natural healing process.
  • Identify and Treat the Cause: Naturopathic physicians aim to identify and treat the underlying cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms.
  • The Whole Person: Naturopathic physicians treat the whole person, considering physical, psychological, social, spiritual, and lifestyle factors.
  • Prevention: Naturopathic physicians focus on disease prevention and health promotion. They work with patients to develop a healthy lifestyle.
