The origins of naturopathy can be traced back over two thousand years to the time of Hippocrates. This Father of Modern Medicine believed that the human organism, with its body, mind and spirit is inextricably linked to the natural world, and with the right conditions, humans have the ability to regenerate and self-heal.
Naturopathic treatments can facilitate the healing of any number of health complaints, including chronic conditions such as allergies and digestive problems, hormonal imbalances and skin conditions, to acute life-threatening diseases. These treatments may either be in conjunction with other medical treatment or in many cases an alternative. In addition, many healthy people choose to see a naturopath on a regular basis as their primary care physician in order to maintain their health and wellbeing.
