Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of healing, which seeks to promote health by stimulating and supporting the body’s inherent power to regain harmony and balance.
The focus of any naturopathic treatment is to increase the vitality of the individual, and to remove any obstructions, chemical, physical or psychological, which may be interfering with the normal functioning and internal harmony of the organs and tissues. The aim is to restore and promote the body’s own functional ability through the usage of gentle but powerful methods which are tailored to each individual. During this process the role of the Naturopath is that of a guide or teacher more than a therapist, with the patient taking an active and responsible part in their treatment.
