What is Naturopathy?

Basically, Naturopathy is a term that covers therapies that deal naturally with the body. The Naturopaths' Philosophy focuses on 3 main principles. First, respect the body's ability to heal itself and offer treatment that does not just alleviates symptoms but also supports the self-healing mechanism. Second, symptoms are not part of the disease itself but are signs the body is trying to eliminate toxins in order to return to a normal state. Third, naturopaths embrace natural, gentle treatment that encompasses a patient's mental, emotional & social aspects.
