What is naturopathy?
This is type of alternative medicine which adopts a holistic approach to patient care. It is based on a belief in a natural energy or ‘vitality’ which we all possess and is responsible for many of the processes in the body, e.g. the metabolism.
But our busy, stressful lifestyles put this vitality under pressure which leads to a variety of physical and psychological conditions such as anxiety, depression, allergies and immune system disorders.
Naturopathy is based upon a combination of mind, body and spirit as a form of healing. It uses a combination of remedies such as homeopathy, acupuncture, chiropractic and nutrition to restore the patient to good health. The patient is encouraged to make small but positive changes to their lifestyle.
