What is naturopathy?
Naturopathy uses a combination of nutrition, herbs and lifestyle advice to support people’s health and wellbeing. It aims to treat the whole person rather than just specific symptoms, and has a strong focus on treating the cause of a condition.
The practice is evidence based and focuses upon disease prevention and health promotion. It is also helpful as a complementary therapy in chronic disease to improve quality of life where further medical intervention is required.
