Naturopathy

Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a system of primary health care that works with the individual’s efforts and resources towards achieving optimal expression of homeostasis on a physiological, physical, mental and emotional level; recognising that all these aspects of health are interconnected. Therefore lifestyle, environment, relationships and diet are all taken into consideration to pin point the root cause of pre-dispositions within the body.

The healing power of Nature and its ability to harness the self-healing mechanisms of the body is a defining principle in Naturopathy. This healing power, known as vital force or chi (qi), is considered to be the driving energy that exists within all living organisms, Nature and the Universe itself. When the vital force is appropriately restored to the individual, the body has the opportunity to heal itself.
