THE BENEFITS OF NATUROPATHY
Steeped in centuries-old tradition, naturopathic medicine blends the wisdom of ancient, natural healing practices with modern, scientific techniques and diagnostic methods.
Naturopathy is a distinct system of primary health care that centres around illness or disease prevention and self-healing processes. Natural treatments and medicines are used to encourage the body’s inherent ability to restore and maintain optimal health and vitality.
A holistic form of medicine, naturopathic doctors view the body as a whole, and treatment is tailored to include all physical, emotional, mental, genetic, environmental and spiritual aspects of each individual’s health. Naturopathic diagnosis focuses on finding the root cause of disease, and removing obstacles to health in a therapeutic, ordered, and intelligent manner.
Naturopathy is used to treat a range of health issues, some of the common ones include:
- Allergies and migraines
- Hormonal imbalances
- Digestive problems
- Sleep disorders
- Chronic pain
- Fertility issues
The goal of naturopathic medicine is to treat the whole person — that means mind, body, and spirit. Its primary aim is to address and treat the root cause of illness rather than merely the symptoms.
