Naturopathy, or naturopathic medicine, is a form of alternative medicine based on a belief in vitalism, which posits that a special energy called vital energy or vital force guides bodily processes such as metabolism, reproduction, growth, and adaptation. Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic approach, and, like conventional medicine, seeks to find the least invasive measures necessary for symptom improvement or resolution, thus encouraging minimal use of surgery and unnecessary drugs. Naturopathic medicine honours the body’s innate wisdom to heal.
Naturopathic treatments include:
- Diet and nutrition
- Structural adjustment (osteopathy, chiropractic treatment etc)
- Healthy lifestyle
We will shortly be expanding the range of the directory to include the whole of the UK.
