Frequently Asked Questions

Why Naturopathy ?

Our body has innate ability to heal itself. Naturopathy seeks to restore and maintain physical and emotional well–being and avoids treatments that work against the body’s own natural processes. In Naturopathy, the human body is treated as “whole” not as a sum of its parts. Naturopathy treatment help the body to heal and rejuvenate itself.

How does naturopathy treatment compare to conventional medicine?

Both are doctors, both provides primary care and both are similarly trained. The primary differences between naturopathy treatment and conventional medicine are the philosophical approach and the therapies used. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) treat patients as individuals by addressing the physical, environmental, lifestyle, attitudinal, and emotional aspects of health. This allows naturopathic doctors to find and treat the cause of the disease using a variety of therapies. Conventional doctors generally address and treat the symptoms of disease and use pharmaceutical therapies or surgery.
