What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a type of complementary medicine that treats the underlying cause of disease rather than just relieving its symptoms. Naturopaths believe that taking the whole person approach during treatment and diagnosis, which means looking at the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of an individual, is more effective in the long term as it actively assists the body's natural ability to heal itself. Naturopathic treatments include iridology, nutritional counselling, homoeopathy, massage, flower essences, acupuncture, exercise and lifestyle modification.
