What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a system of health care which promotes the body’s own self-healing mechanism. It uses natural therapies such as Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Hydrotherapy, Physical Manipulations, Colonic Irrigation, Fasting, Exercise and others, following Naturopathic principles. These principles are kept in mind when a Naturopath takes a case, develops treatment plans and offers maintenance for long term term good health.
