The origins of naturopathy

The principles of Naturopathy were first used by the Hippocratic School of Medicine around 400 B.C. The Greek philosopher Hippocrates believed in looking at the whole person when it came to finding the cause of disease and using the laws of nature to induce healing. From this original school of thought naturopathy draws its principles.

The healing power of nature: nature has the innate ability to heal

Identify and treat the cause: There is always an underlying cause, whether it is physical or emotional.

Do no harm: A naturopath will never use treatments that could create other conditions.

Treat the Whole Person: When preparing a treatment plan, all aspects of a person’s being are considered.

The Naturopath as Teacher: A naturopath empowers the patient to take responsibility for their own health by teaching them how to care for themselves.

Prevention is better than cure: A naturopath can eliminate toxic substances and situations from a patient’s lifestyle to prevent the onset of further disease.

Natural medicine, naturopathy, is a pseudoscience that encompasses a series of practices or therapies with preventive or curative intent using elements obtained from nature with a low or no level of processing. It is used for any alternative or complementary medicine that uses traditional or non-industrial remedies, such as medicinal plants.
