What is naturopathy or naturopathic practice?
Naturopathy is a complete alternative medicine. It focuses on the strengthening of the body’s self-healing natural mechanisms. The goal of the naturopath is to stimulate and build up these defence mechanisms instead of treating the symptoms or pathogens (like germs) head on. By doing an overall assessment of your health, it is possible to determine with precision the real causes of metabolic dysfunctions responsible for your symptoms. Naturopathy is therefore a work of great prevention. The naturopath aims his research as much on the physical (pain, skin, breathlessness…) and mental (stress, fatigue, anxiety…) aspects as on your overall health practices (eating habits, sleep…).
By simple and natural means, the naturopath uses treatment methods that are readily available to you and are not, in anyway, harmful to your health (like medication intake).
Amongst the preferred tools used in naturopathy, there are nutrition, aromatherapy, physical manipulations (like massotherapy), physical exercises (to strengthen the body, improve posture or breathing), stress management techniques and phytotherapy (use of medicinal plants).
