Naturopathic medicine is a science-based tradition that promotes wellness by identifying the unique aspects of each patient and then employing non-toxic natural therapies to restore his or her physiological, psychological, and structural balance. Naturopathic physicians are often successful at treating chronic conditions that don't respond to conventional medicine. This includes, but is not limited to: fatigue, pain, sleep disturbance, and digestive disorders. They are able to respond to the individual needs of patients and develop a treatment plan that includes nutritional supplements, botanical medicine, and diet therapy. The applied aspects of Naturopathy includes mainly fasting and diet supported by treatments with natural elements such as Hydrotherapy, Chromotherapy, Mud Therapy, Massage Therapy, Electrotherapy, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Exercise & Yoga.
A Traditional Naturopath is not licensed by the state as states like New York dont license Naturopaths. A Naturopathic Physician has received their license in some other state that does license and has received a degree in this field.
Naturopathy, or Nature Cure, is underpinned by a fundamental principle – vis medicatrix naturae – the healing power of nature. This was made clear twenty-five centuries ago when Hippocrates said “Health is the expression of a harmonious balance between various components of man’s nature, the environment and ways of life – nature is the physician of disease”
The principles of Naturopathy were first used by the Hippocratic School of Medicine in about 400 BC. The Greek philosopher Hippocrates believed in viewing the whole person in regards to finding a cause of disease, and using the laws of nature to induce cure. It was from this original school of thought that Naturopathy takes its principles.
Naturopathy believes in a special energy that flows inside the body and is responsible for all the vital functions. Unlike other methods of treatment, naturopathy encourages minimal use of medicines, and instead aims to lower stress, promote dietary and lifestyle changes, and even encourage psychotherapy or counseling.
