Naturopathy

Naturopathic medicine is based on the healing power of nature. Naturopathy is a holistic health system which means that naturopathic doctors strive to find the cause of disease by understanding the body, mind and spirit of a person. Experts use a variety of gentle, non-invasive techniques and treatment modalities to stimulate the body’s inherent healing capacity.

About Naturopathy and Clinical Nutrition

Healthy eating is an integral part of naturopathy. Individual diets and nutritional supplements are recommended to address deficiencies, treat disease processes and promote health. The benefits include increased energy, increased gastrointestinal function, improved immunity and general well being. Read more about Clinical Nutrition.

Homeopathic Medicine, Herbal Medicine & Physical Medicine

Homeopathy was developed in the 1700s. It is based on the principle of “like cures like.” It works by selecting a remedy, which in its crude form would produce in a healthy individual the same symptoms found in a sick person suffering from the specific disease. Minute amounts of natural substances (plant, animal, mineral) are used to stimulate the body’s innate ability to heal, as the aim is to change the body’s energy levels that lie at the root of disease. Homeopathy is a powerful tool and has healing effects on a physical and emotional level.

Herbal medicine or plant-based medicine uses herbal teas, tinctures, capsules and other forms of herbal preparations to assist the body's recovery
