What is Naturopathy?

The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptom of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, an unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/ acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.
