What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a system of health care based on the healing power of nature. Naturopaths are practitioners that strive to find the cause of disease by understanding the body, mind, and spirit of the person. Most naturopaths use a variety of therapies and techniques (such as nutrition, herbal medicine, detoxification and natural therapies).

There are two areas of focus in naturopathy. One is supporting the body's own healing abilities, and the other is empowering people to make lifestyle changes necessary for the best possible health. While naturopathis address both short bouts of illness and chronic conditions, their emphasis is on preventing disease and educating clients.

Why do people choose a Naturopathic Practitioner? 

1. Many people are tired of taking medication or simply refuse to take any medication at all. We offer an alternative to medication that addresses the root cause of your symptoms, alleviating most if not all, problems in the process. These people are happy to take a natural approach to their health, avoiding the side effects of medications.

2. Other people prefer to spend their time, money and efforts in PREVENTION. A large part of what Naturopaths focus on is the health of the entire body. Each part of the body is a piece of the whole and when they are all working together in harmony you will achieve optimal health.

3.  There are also some people that come in to the office that have lost hope. The medical community has given up on these people and they have been told that there is "nothing they can do." These people come to holistic professionals because they have no where else to go. There are met with hope, solutions, and are shown a way through their illnesses.
