Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is the study of combining safe guided disease prevention principles with western herbal medicine and nutrition. The use western herbal medicine, plants and nature, in combination with the other factors can encourage the body's inherent ability to heal itself naturally.

A naturopath observes a broad perspective of an individual's life to uncover why the dysfunction or illness may have occurred in the body. Then we can treat according to the person's individual needs. The individuality of care, rather than a protocol approach is how complex and chronic cases can be healed or managed more effectively. This creates a tailored prescription with specific education on beneficial health practices and allows people to take more responsibility for their own health.
