Naturopathy is a medical system incorporating a holistic approach to health and healing. A naturopath uses natural methods and substances such as herbal medicine, iridology, foods and nutritional supplements to support and promote the body's own healing and regulating mechanisms. Advice on diet and lifestyle is part of a consultation.
Naturopathy is a health oriented medicine which emphasises the maintenance of health and prevention of disease.
Whilst symptoms reveal important information, a naturopathic treatment reaches beyond easing symptoms, seeking to discover their actual cause. Treating the source of imbalance produces the results.
A qualified naturopath has undertaken extensive studies in the sciences (chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy and physiology, pathology) as well as herbal medicine, nutrition, counselling, iridology, and much more. A naturopath studies for at least 4 years full time and may specialise in a particular area.
Nutrition has always been at the cornerstone of Naturopathic medicine and involves the use of foods and sometimes nutritional supplements to influence health and the disease process. We can only be truly healthy if we eat a nutrient rich diet, rather than the overly processed and nutrient poor diet alot of us can 'get by' on but will impact our health at some point.
