To promote healing and wellness, naturally.
The term “Naturopathy” refers to a non-invasive natural medicine which embraces therapies and procedures that work in harmony with nature in the restoration and support of the body’s defense systems against numerous health disorders. In Naturopathy, correction of the cause is the most plausible way of eliminating the symptoms and restoring health and balance to the individual.
What is a Traditional Naturopath?
A Traditional Naturopath is a trained specialist in subjects such as: anatomy, physiology, dietary evaluations, nutrition, herbology, acupressure, muscle relation and structural normalization, homeopathy and iridology. They tailor the healing modality to the needs of the individual with methods which are effective for both chronic and acute problems. Traditional Naturopaths cooperate with all branches of medical science, referring individuals to other practitioners for diagnosis treatment when appropriate.
The Naturopathic Philosophy advocates 7 principles.
1. Do no Harm – Traditional Naturopathy embraces only therapies/procedures designed to enhance healing and produce wellness.
2. Recognize - the healing power of nature. There is a healing power in nature and this principal is the basis for all of naturopathy.
3. Identifying the cause – The correction of the cause is the most plausible way of eliminating the symptoms and restoring health to the person.
4. Involve the total person – Traditional Naturopaths are aware that a person can have a physical, spiritual or emotional illness. The chosen therapy is determined by what kind of problem the person is experiencing.
5. Teach rather than treat – Naturopathic philosophy places the responsibility for wellness with the individual. The goal is to help the person empower themselves to heal.
6. Identify the source – Other than in trauma-type injuries, seldom does the body have isolated mono-factorial conditions but rather experiences “dis-ease” as a consequence of a number of heath debilitating events. Dis means “deprived of” and ease means “comfort.”
7. Prevent “dis-ease” – There is an effective system based on natural restorative methods. Traditional Naturopaths advise their clients on simple “dis-ease” prevention principles which are designed to restore health.
