Naturopathic Information:

Naturopathy is a type of alternative medicine which is based on the philosophy of vitalism, the belief that the body has something called vital energy or vital force. This energy guides essential bodily processes such as metabolism, reproduction, growth, and adaptation.

Naturopathic practitioners believe in the minimal use of surgery and drugs. The practice of naturopathy focuses on natural self-healing rather than a specific method. Consultation with a naturopath begins with an evaluation of the patient's lifestyle, medical history, emotional status, and a physical examination. Some alternative practices that naturopaths may use include acupuncture, botanical medicine, color therapy, homeopathy, and many more. They also practice 'nature cure' which requires patients to be exposed to natural elements such as sunshine, fresh air, heat, or cold.
