Naturopathy provides you with a natural way to heal from illness and reclaim your energy, vitality, and health.
What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy stems from the premise that the body has an incredible healing ability that can be tapped from within when given the proper tools. It combines modern scientific knowledge with natural healing techniques. The philosophy behind Naturopathy is to stimulate this natural healing power of the body and treat the underlying causes of disease.
Illness is treated through means alternative to drugs using an approach that is whole body and preventative. Finding healthy alternatives to everyday foods to improve the nutritional value of the diet, lifestyle changes, stress management, supplements and vitamins as needed, all are used to treat both acute and chronic conditions.
Naturopathic treatment plans are determined based on the unique needs of each individual patient. Your physiological, biological, psychological, social, spiritual, environmental and lifestyle factors are all considered. We all have a unique genetic make up and lifestyle, and no two individuals are alike, therefore each program created by a Naturopath will be specifically tailored to meet your own specific needs.
The Benefits of Naturopathy
Naturopaths work closely with their clients to determine the underlying root cause of their ailments. Unlike traditional medicine which treats the symptoms and can therefore only cover up the underlying cause, Naturopathy focuses on the cause thereby achieving long term healing and not simply alleviating the symptoms of illness. Further, remedies are 100% natural and always promote overall health. Many pharmaceutical treatments, while controlling the symptoms of one condition, include side-effects which can deteriorate other bodily systems in the long term.
A good example of this would be acid reflux or heart burn. A medical doctor may prescribe antacids which disallow the body to absorb adequate protein and iron thereby weakening your system, and potentially leading to osteoporosis, fatigue, and other long term negative consequences for your overall health. In this instance, the symptoms are alleviated, but your long-term health is compromised. A Naturopath examines and treats the underlying cause of health concerns such as acid reflux through natural means so they can be resolved once and for all.
