Naturopathy, sometimes called naturopathic medicine, is a system of medicine based on the inherent healing power of nature. Naturopathy is a holistic system, meaning that naturopathic doctors (N.D.s) or naturopathic medical doctors (N.M.D.s) strive to find the cause of disease by understanding the body, mind, and spirit of the person. Most naturopathic doctors use a variety of therapies and techniques such as nutrition, behavior change, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture. Naturopathy Herbs There are two main areas of focus in naturopathy. The first is the support of the body's own natural healing abilities, and the second is empowering people to make lifestyle changes necessary for the best possible health. Naturopathic diagnosis focuses on identifying the underlying causes of disease rather than treating the symptoms, while naturopathic therapies are evidence based and supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals from many disciplines, including naturopathic medicine, conventional medicine, European complementary medicine, clinical nutrition, phytotherapy, pharmacognosy, homeopathy, psychology and spirituality. The therapeutic modalities used in naturopathic medicine (including physical manipulation, clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy and hydrotherapy) integrate conventional, scientific and empirical methodology with the ancient laws of nature. The underpinnings of naturopathic medical practice are in six principles:
  • First Do No Harm - primum non nocere
  • The Healing Power of Nature - vis medicatrix naturae
  • Discover and Treat the Cause, Not Just the Effect - tolle causam
  • Treat the Whole Person - tolle totum
  • The Physician is a Teacher - docere
  • Prevention is the best "cure" - praevenire
Naturopathy herbs and medicine Naturopathic physicians seek to motivate the individual toward a healthy and balanced diet, lifestyle, and mental attitude. Many traditional medical therapies, such as homeopathic medicine, clinical nutrition, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Ayurveda are used to enhance the body’s natural healing abilities. Naturopathy is a holistic expression of medicine as it should be: medicine that takes into account the physical, sensual (of the senses), mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of a person and treats illness by treating the whole, rather than the parts.
