Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a system of medicine which originated in Ancient Greece (around 400BC) and continues to exist and grow rapidly in our times. Unlike allopathic (modern) medicine that strongly believes in the power of synthetically created medication, Naturopathy is based on the principle “Vis Medicatrix Naturae” or “The Healing Power of Nature”. This means that the body has its natural ability to heal itself if the right support is provided and the obstructions to cure are removed. Hence Naturopathy uses nutrition, hydrotherapy, herbalism, homeopathy, acupuncture, exercise and other natural modalities to stimulate the body to heal itself from within. At the same time naturopathic physician will stress the importance of lifestyle changes in order to remove “the obstructions to cure”, which led to development of the disease on the first place.

Another difference between naturopathy and allopathy (modern medicine) lies in physicians’ view of the disease. Allopathic doctor is trained to assess symptoms of the disease and treat them separately with various allopathic drugs. Naturopathic physician, on the other hand, will assess the person as a whole (or composed of the body, mind and soul) and will treat the person holistically, firstly addressing the root cause of the problem, rather than just treating the separate symptoms, in order to produce a permanent cure rather than just a temporal fix of the problem.

Based on what has been said above, a true naturopathic physician will follow 6 basic principles:

  • Let the Nature Heal
  • Identify and Treat the Cause of the Disease
  • First Do No Harm
  • Educate patients
  • Treat the Whole Person
  • Stress Illness Prevention

Just like everything evolves with the scientific discoveries so does the naturopathy. While the basic principles have remained unchanged over the years, the healing methods have become richer and are now composed of traditional natural therapies, newly developed natural healing methods and advances of medical science.
