What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathic medicine is a primary health care which underlines the prevention and treatment of disease, maintenance of optimal health, and promotion of the natural self-healing process which naturopathic doctors refer to as the "vis medicatrix naturae," the healing power of nature.
It combines centuries-old natural, harmless therapies with current advances in the study of health and human systems, covering all aspects of family health.
Naturopathic medicine has been shown to be effective for treating most health problems, both acute and chronic. Some of the therapies most commonly utilised by ND’s include nutrition, homeopathy, herbal medicine, oriental medicine, massage, hydro-therapy, counselling and stress management.
