WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A NATUROPATH?
A traditional Naturopath specializes in wellness. They teach patients/clients how applying natural lifestyle approaches can act to facilitate the body’s own natural healing and health building potential. The traditional naturopath does not medically undertake to “diagnose” or “treat diseases,” nor by traditional definition DO NOT use surgery, drugs, or other harsh, or invasive methodology in their consulting. But, rather recognizes that the majority of chronic sub-health conditions are cumulative lifestyle effects, and that the underlying cause of what we call “disease” (or, “dis-ease”) is a combination of improper eating, unhealthy habits, and environmental factors which cause biological imbalances leading to a weakening of the bodies’ natural defenses (immune system) and subsequent breakdown in health. The main goal is to restore homeostasis within the body by finding root causes and addressing them; so the body can facilitate it’s own natural healing to regain balance/homeostasis. Traditional Naturopaths guide and teach their patient/client in natural health approaches such as fasting and detoxification, dietary wellness and nutrition, sensitivity awareness, the use of herbs & homeopathy, aromatherapy, exercise, rest, sunshine, and many other natural health modalities.
