In naturopathy, emphasis is placed on the intrinsic ability of the body to heal and maintain itself. Naturopathy uses natural remedies like herbs and foods rather than surgery and harmful drugs. Naturopathic Medicine/Naturopathy is a school of medical philosophy and practice that seeks to improve health and treat disease chiefly by assisting the bodys innate capacity to recover from illness and injury. Naturopathic practice may include a wide range of various modalities including Manual Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Herbalism, Acupuncture, Counseling, Environmental Medicine, Aromatherapy, Nutritional Counseling, Homeopathy, and so on.
Naturopathy treatment has its origins in India along with Ayurveda, but is today practiced in many countries around the world in one form or another, where it is subject to different standards of regulation and levels of acceptance. Our highly qualified Naturopathic practitioners prefer not to use invasive surgery or most synthetic drugs, preferring natural remedies, for instance, relatively unprocessed or whole medications such as herbs and foods. Diagnostic tests such as imaging and blood tests are done before deciding upon the full course of treatment. Our Naturopathic practitioners also use prescription medications and surgery when necessary and refer with other medical practitioners, when needed.
