Every imbalance in health is simply the body’s way of telling you that you need to change.
Naturopaths believe that ultimately:
health is a vibrant state of wellness
rather than just the absence of illness.
Naturopathy, or naturopathic medicine, is an alternative form of medicine based on the healing power of nature. It is a holistic approach taking into account the whole of the person:
physical, mental / emotional and spiritual aspect. These need to be in balance to achieve optimum health and the state of happiness.
Naturopaths draw from a wide range of modalities to restore balance to your life. Illness arises because one or all of these needs have not been met.
In naturopathy, clients are participants in their health care.
Starting from the knowledge that the human body has an innate healing ability, naturopaths believe this ability is guided by a special energy called vital energy or vital force. This force regulates bodily processes such as metabolism, reproduction, growth, and adaptation and is what the ancient alternative medicines called prana, chi, and khi.
As long as it is flowing freely, and we give ourselves all the nutrients necessary for us to function, the human body is able to heal, repair itself and restore balance.
There are 3 main pillars of naturopathy:
- Diet & Nutrition
- Exercise & Detoxification
- Emotional-Mental well-being
The health of man is a reflection of that of the earth
