Naturopathy offers a holistic approach to wellness. What makes it different from other treatment approaches is the fact that it treats each person as an individual and supports the whole person to live a healthy lifestyle.
Naturopathy is founded upon the importance of clean fresh water, healthy diet, sunlight exercise and stress management. A naturopathic doctor works with patients mainly through education on self-care, minimising symptoms of any illness and supporting the body’s natural capacity to heal.
A range of therapies are used to support the person. Therapies may include nutritional medicine, diet advice, herbal medicine, homoeopathy, lifestyle advice, and tactile therapies, such as massage, acupressure or Bowen technique.
