What is naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to health that aims to promote health and well-being using natural methods of prevention, treatment and healing.

The term "naturopathy" comes from the Latin words " natura " (nature) and " pathos " (disease), which literally means " healing by nature ".

Naturopathy is a comprehensive treatment method that considers each individual as a unique being. It focuses on prevention and stimulation of the body's self-healing mechanisms.

Naturopaths take a holistic approach to health, evaluating all aspects of a person's life, including their diet, lifestyle, environment, emotions and mental state.

The fundamental pillars of naturopathy

The healing power of nature

Naturopathy uses natural remedies such as herbs, diet, hydrotherapy, chiropractic, homeopathy and other natural approaches to support the body's natural healing processes.

Identification and treatment of the cause

Naturopaths seek to identify and treat the underlying cause of symptoms rather than simply suppressing the symptoms themselves. They view symptoms as warning signs indicating an underlying imbalance.

Primum non nocere (first do no harm)

Naturopathy aims to use gentle, non-invasive treatment methods, avoiding harmful side effects as much as possible. It also encourages the use of low-risk therapies before resorting to more serious interventions.

The doctor as educator

Naturopaths serve in the role of advisor and educator, helping individuals take charge of their own health by providing them with the knowledge and tools needed to make informed decisions about their well-being.

Stress management techniques

Naturopathy recognizes the close connection between body and mind. Relaxation techniques, such as meditation, deep breathing and stress management, are often incorporated into naturopathic treatment plans.

Physical exercise

Moving regularly is vital to maintaining a healthy body. Naturopaths encourage physical activity adapted to each person, in order to promote blood circulation, strengthen the immune system and improve overall well-being.

Whether you want to improve your general health, prevent disease, or treat specific health concerns, naturopathy can offer valuable support. Naturopaths work collaboratively with you to establish a personalized treatment plan that takes your unique situation into account.

Please note that a naturopathic approach does not replace medical monitoring. It is complementary.
