What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Modern day living brings stress, pollution and poor diet, all of which conspire to deplete us of essential nutrition and disrupt the natural equilibrium within our bodies. In a culture of achievement and professional success, nutrition and healthcare are often left at the bottom of the priority list. If left unaddressed these imbalances can progressively have a higher impact on our lives.

Naturopathic Medicine or ‘CAM’ (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) is an integrative system of health care which encourages and promotes the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms using an eclectic approach. It focuses on prevention of illness and the use of nontoxic, natural therapies. As an holistic system it aims to promote and restore health by employing various non-invasive treatment approaches that may include: naturopathic nutrition, lifestyle advice, herbal medicine, naturopathic psychosocial support and other appropriate techniques.
