Naturopathy is a method of medical treatment in which holistic principles are applied (treating the body as a whole) to determine the root cause/s of a persons' ill health. The bodies natural ability to heal itself is then stimulated and supported to restore optimal function, rather than just treating the symptoms alone. To do this a Naturopath will commonly use tools such as herbal medicines, nutraceuticals, nutritional supplements and dietary and lifestyle advice.
