WHAT IS NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE ?

The ideology and methods of naturopathy are based on vitalism and self-healing, rather than evidence-based medicine. Naturopaths generally recommend against modern medicine, including surgery, drugs, and vaccinations, in favor of methods claimed to be holistic and non-invasive. Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness based on the principle that the body has the inherent ability to heal itself. Using the healing power of nature and gentle therapeutic techniques, the body, mind and emotions are supported during the healing process.
