Naturopathy is based on the approach of promoting wellness and emphasising healing through natural therapies and healthy living. It encompasses diet, lifestyle and a variety of natural treatments into a well rounded tailored plan to achieve health and wellness.
A consultation involves taking a comprehensive history to establish a timeline of dis-ease within the body. Symptoms are a warning sign of something amiss in the body. When someone presents with an illness a naturopath looks to find the root cause of the illness and not the presenting symptoms. This allows the person to be treated and not the symptoms.
