Naturopathy is branch of complementary and alternative medicine that utilises a wide array of natural remedies and techniques to restore and maintain health in a way that encourages and supports the body’s own innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathic medicine aims to identify and treat the cause of imbalance within the body, and not only addresses physical ailments, but also encompasses the mental, emotional, spiritual and environmental aspects of an individual’s wellbeing.
Naturopathic techniques include the use of herbal, nutritional and energetic medicine, along with comprehensive dietary and lifestyle advice. These techniques can be used to treat a range of conditions including nutritional deficiencies, digestive disorders, food intolerances, hormonal imbalances, chronic illness, fatigue, stress management, weight loss, mental and emotional health, detoxification, parasitic infections, common colds and viruses.
Because naturopathic medicines are derived directly from nature, they are easily recognised and utilised by the body, making them a highly effective and safe form of treatment.
