What Is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a system of healing which means, essentially, “to follow the path of nature.” It has been practiced for centuries and is directly based on observable scientific principles. Modern naturopathy grew out of the 19th Century Natural Cure movement of Europe, and was popularized in the U.S. by Benedict Lust. Naturopaths do not practice allopathic medicine, do not prescribe drugs, and do not diagnose or treat diseases. Rather, by using natural, drugless therapies and methods, Naturopaths facilitate the body’s own ability to heal and rebalance itself. Natural healing methods are non-invasive, safe, and effective.
