What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness. Naturopathy treats each person as an individual and supports the whole person to live a healthy lifestyle. The foundations of Naturopathy are based on the importance of a healthy wholesome diet, clean fresh water, sunlight, exercise and stress management.

Naturopathy aims to educate the person to look after their own health and the health of their family, minimising symptoms of any illness, supporting the body’s capacity to heal, and balancing the body so that illness is less likely to occur in the future.

A range of therapies are used to support the person and are non-invasive, effective, and gently on the body. Treatments address the cause of your health problem by encouraging the body’s own self-healing through the use of herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, vitamin and mineral therapy, flower essences, homeopathy, diet and lifestyle advice.

If you’ve been putting your health second for too long then a visit to James may be just what you need.
