+ What is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is based on the healing power of nature and it supports and stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself. Naturopathy is the art and science of disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention using natural therapies including: dietetics, botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, fasting, naturopathic manipulation, traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, exercise, lifestyle counselling, detoxification and chelation, environmental assessment and adjustment, spiritual healing, health promotion and disease prevention.
The General Council and Register of Naturopaths defines Naturopathy as a therapeutic system with four distinguishing characteristics:
- It sees to facilitate and promote the body’s inherent ability to self-heal;
- It acknowledges that every patient is unique;
- It always tries to identify the cause of a condition, rather than just the end effect;
- It uses a holistic approach, taking into account the inter-related organs and systems of the body, and not just the locally affected area or organ.
+ What is Naturopathic Oncology Symptoms Support?
Naturopathic oncology symptoms support applies the art and science of naturopathic medicine to cancer patients to help with the side-effects of chemotherapy.
