Naturopaths believe that ultimately health is a vibrant state of wellness rather than just the absence of illness. Essential to their belief is that the body has a great power to maintain its own balance if given all the elements it needs. The bodys needs are greater than those physical requirements of food, air, and water. For true health to exist the philosophy maintains we must also meet mental, emotional and spiritual needs. It is only when the body, mind and soul are addressed that real health and happiness presides.
Naturopaths, therefore draw from a wide range of modalities to teach you how to restore balance into your life on levels other than physical, as illness essentially arises from one or all of these needs not being met. One of these is iridology.
