What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a medicinal system that makes use of natural medicines to facilitate the body in healing itself through many forms of treatment, such as nutritional counseling, exercise, herbs, acupuncture and massage. Naturopathic medicine came to limelight in late 1800s, but this form of medicine and its remedies are hundreds of years old, which is now integrated with modern science to produce much greater results.

How Does It Work?

The philosophy behind naturopathic medicine is not based on symptoms of a certain illness, rather, naturopathy is aimed to heal the person completely in terms of body, mind, and spirit by identifying and eliminating the root causes of their illnesses.

The naturopathic treatment includes a general examination of the person about their overall health history and lifestyle habits, which may last a couple of hours followed by some lab tests as required. If the naturopathic practitioner diagnoses some problems, they might discuss the respective health plan with the patients which may include exercise and diet tips along with stress management guidelines. Sometimes, complementary form of medicine is also required for some patients which includes acupuncture, homeopathy or herbal medicine along with naturopathic remedies. Another treatment called as naturopathic manipulative therapy is sometimes employed which makes use of massage and pressure techniques.
