Naturopathy is an noninvasive, natural method of healing
It’s based on:
Prevention is preferable to cure
The root cause of dysfunction is identified & treated, not the symptoms
The whole person is treated, not the disease
These are the most basic differences between a Naturopathic approach and that of conventional medicine.
Naturopathy is an umbrella term for a variety of natural therapies, which can be used in combination or individually, depending on a person’s needs. It’s philosophy is based on addressing both symptoms and more importantly the underlying causes. The emphasis is on directing and controlling health into the future, while improving the overall vitality of a person and immune response.
Symptoms are a reflection of a disordered overall system. Balance and equilibrium are the goals of Naturopathy. An example of this could be chronic migraines, or a skin condition such as chronic eczema. These are often symptoms of a deeper condition. Headaches and migraines are rarely caused by the head, but are so often related to digestive, hormonal, stress, or neck and back problems.
