                                        Discover Naturopathy - The Power of Natural Medicine

                                        Naturopathy is a system of healthcare with a deep history of traditional philosophies and practices, medically trained practitioners and a breath of natural treatment options to serve patients.

                                        Naturopathic History

                                        Naturopathy has been part of every country for centuries. Many of the principles and philosophies of naturopathy originated in Europe in the 16th and 17th century. The original naturopaths – prior to 1900s – from around the world, were trained by European doctors using hydrotherapy, herbal medicine and other traditional forms of healing. Currently, European countries consider their practice of naturopathy as a system of healthcare that has evolved by incorporating the traditional medicine of each country with the naturopathic principles, theories, modalities and traditions that have been codified in North America. Traditional forms of naturopathic teaching and practice are still common in Europe.

                                        Naturopathic Principles

                                        The naturopathic principles taught in most countries include:

                                        • First, Do No Harm (primum non nocere)
                                        • Healing Power of Nature (vis medicatrixnaturae)
                                        • Treat the Cause (tollecausam)
