Naturopathy makes use of natural remedies to assist the body to heal itself. Treatment of the whole person is emphasized.
Many principals used in naturopathy originated in Germany and Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. Modern naturopathy evolved from this after it was brought to North America from Germany in the 1800s.
The goal of the naturopath is to treat the root cause of illness as well as help you understand more about your body. Many different types of therapies can be used, including herbs, acupuncture and nutritional or dietary counseling. With the use of these interventions, a naturopath can help restore your body’s innate ability to heal itself. An extensive assessment of your health and lifestyle history will let your naturopath know what will be appropriate for you.
