What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathic Medicine is a health care system based on natural therapies, underpinned by the fundamental belief that given the right conditions, the body has an innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathic physicians diagnose, treat and manage acute and chronic conditions. Rather than focusing on a collection of individual symptoms a naturopath looks at a person as a whole – body, mind and spirit.

What does treatment consist of?

A & B Healing College & Clinic Naturopathic physicians identify and treat the root cause of any symptoms. An initial consultation with a Naturopathic physician normally takes about an hour. During this time the Naturopathic physician will ask questions about the person’s condition, medical history, diet and lifestyle, and any conventional treatments that they may be taking. The consulting Naturopathic physician may then use Iridology (looking into the iris)to diagnos the complete health state of the client. Once all of the information is gathered, a treatment plan is formulated that addresses all areas of the person’s life, providing the body with the optimum chance to heal itself. The treatment plan may include advice on diet, lifestyle, exercise, herbal medicine, homeopathic treatments, or other suitable remedies.
