Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a complementary medicine that looks at the whole person - mind, body and spirit. It is both a science and a philosophy that has existed for thousands of years and is a distinctive system of healing which seeks to promote health by stimulating and supporting the body's inherent power to regain harmony and balance. It draws from a range of therapies such as herbal medicine, supplements, tissue salts, homeopathy, nutrition, hydrotherapy and lifestyle advice.

Health, disease and cure are manifestations of vitality - the vital force. This vital force is the primary force of all forces, the energy that flows throughout the universe; it is the supreme intelligence and power acting in and through every cell and molecule of the human body and every atom in the universe. It always endeavours to heal, repair and to restore the balance for perfect health.

The vital force is stimulated by factors which promote health and suppressed by excesses and deficiencies. Early naturopaths recognised that by restoring the vital force to the patient, the body would naturally heal itself. Naturopaths treat the person, not the disease. People are treated holistically with all aspects of their life taken into consideration.  Naturopathy is a non-invasive natural therapy that is suitable for everyone.
