What is Naturopathy?
It is a science which deals with the healing power of nature. The belief is that all creatures have healing powers within them. The healing energy which includes our immune system in both the physical and the psyche is responsible for our wellness and our ability to heal and maintain health.
Why is it important?
Naturopathy is a holistic approach to medical intervention. It not only deals with the symptoms or conditions, but also treats the causative factors.
How does it work?
This science holds that human beings' existence is dictated by Nature's five elements -
Earth (Representing the solid structure in the body like the bones..etc),
Water (Representing the fluids such as blood, lymph..etc),
Air (Representing the breath of life),
Fire (Symbolising digestive organs and vitality) and
Space (The reflection of human spirit, soul..etc).
This way Naturopathy uses the natural elements to bring about healing.
Who is it useful for?
Useful across the board to treat moderate to chronic conditions.
