The human body was created with the capacity to heal itself and to maintain balance or homeostasis. There is a tremendous healing power in nature and this principal is the basis for all of Naturopathy. Naturopathy is a system designed to work in harmony with nature in the restoration and support of the inherent natural healing systems of the body.
Natural Healing has been used throughout the world for hundreds of years. Our bodies are designed to heal themselves naturally and maintain optimal health by eating foods full of natural vitamins, minerals, and nutrients along with proper amounts of exercise.
Naturopaths are trained specialists in a separate and distinct healing art which uses non-invasive natural methods involving the individual in the healing process. Naturopathy is based upon the belief in the bodies innate God-given natural ability to heal itself when given an appropriate internal and external healing environment. Naturopaths are not involved in the practice of medicine and do not use drugs or pharmaceuticals, nor do they perform surgery.
Over the past 50 years, the lifestyle of our society has changed dramatically. The foods we eat are full of chemicals and preservatives, not vitamins, minerals and nutrients. The soils our foods are grown in are mineral deficient and are constantly treated with pesticides. The water we drink and bathe in has been treated with dozens of chemicals. We have no time for the proper amounts of exercise, working as many hours as we do. The stress from our life style has a negative effect on all of our body systems. We are slowly killing ourselves.
