What is a Naturopath?
Naturopathic Medicine also know as Naturopathy is the practice of holistic, preventable medicine focused on treating the underlying cause of illness. Conventional health science is integrated with natural medicine to treat the person as a whole, focusing on mental, emotional and physical health. Naturopathy views the body as one entire organism made up of multiple systems working synergistically, opposed to modern medical reductionist techniques. The practice of Naturopathy aims to identify vulnerable systems and remove the causative factors, preventing diagnosable pathology later in life.
Qualified Naturopathic Practitioners complete and extensive 4 Year Medical Health Science Degree. Treatment usually involves nutritional, lifestyle and herbal intervention, with a strong focus on fixing the underlying and exacerbating causes.
Why see a Naturopath?
Conventional medicine is brilliant at helping people overcome life threatening conditions, but not so much in the way of chronic degenerative diseases. Have you ever wondered why technology gets faster, cheaper and smaller every year, while the rates of diabetes, autoimmune diseases and cancer continue to rise? Unfortunately there will never be a magical pill for every ill. The key to Naturopathy is to treat the underlying cause of disease, and bring people back to optimal health.
