How Can Naturopathy Help You?

22 Aug Naturopathic Principles
1. Given the right conditions, the body heals itself. 
A Naturopath advises you on tools that create the right conditions for healing in the body or in improving your life force. A Naturopath may include good nutrition, herbs, aromatherapy, nutritional supplements, positive relationships, exercise, meditation etc to bring the body into balance.
2. Treat the root not the branches.
If you have a headache, you may choose to take a pain killer. A Naturopath looks a bit deeper, at stress, diet, levels of toxins in the body, hormones, allergies etc.
3. Prevention is better than cure
If your parents, siblings have a history of heart disease, A Naturopath may advise you and help you to keep weight and cholesterol down, to get regular appropriate exercise and to eat a healthy diet and avoid a stressful lifestyle.
4. The body has an innate ability to heal itself. 
A Naturopath tries to increase this ability mainly through high life force foods, herbs and nutritional supplements.
5. Don't suppress symptoms eg. anti-diarrhoea medication.
 A Naturopath believes the symptom is there to clear the bug (once the patient is monitored and does not become dehydrated) .

 A Naturoapth believes health is abundant vitality on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level!
