Naturopathic medicine is a system that uses natural remedies to help the body heal itself. The principle of naturopathy is based on the belief that the body has an innate capacity for self-healing. The goal of naturopathic medicine is to treat the whole person — that means mind, body, and spirit. It also aims to heal the root causes of an illness — not just stop the symptoms.
Naturopaths employ various treatment modalities, including herbal medicine, nutritional counseling, lifestyle modifications, physical therapies, and mind-body techniques, to support the body’s healing processes.
