A Naturopath is a health practitioner who applies all the natural therapies based upon a holistic framework (mind – body – spirit) to help restores health back to the body without the use of standard drugs or surgery.
Naturopathic medicine is based around the study and celebration of nature’s healing powers. It can be regarded as old as healing itself and still as new as today’s medical breakthroughs. It utilises the most natural, least invasive and least toxic therapies to promote wellness by viewing the body as an integrated whole.
A Naturopath works with the principal that there is a vital force (energy field) which influences the body’s life forces. These life forces work to heal through cleansing, nourishing and repairing the body to create a state of positive health. Stresses in our life whether physical, mental or spiritual, ultimately block the flow of this vital force flow in the body. The symptoms which arise in the body are simply a sign indicating that it’s striving to restore health and is struggling to so. Therefore, a naturopath’s role is to determine the root cause of these symptoms/imbalances and support the clients healing processes towards health.
