Naturopathy is an umbrella term for a number of natural therapies, which are practiced by one practitioner. The common modalities, which all naturopaths share are nutritional medicine and herbal medicine. In nutritional medicine the focus is on the diet (“let food be thy medicine”) and determining any nutritional deficiencies with a view to correct them.
Herbal medicine utilises liquid herbal extracts, herbs in capsules or tablet form not only to alleviate physical symptoms, but to work on the energetic level as well. Both herbal and nutritional medicines have been widely researched and backed up by evidence-based medicine and form the core of naturopathic medicine.
Some naturopaths choose other modalities in addition to the main ones. Some of them are iridology, flower essences, homeopathy, movement techniques, hypnotherapy, etc.
Over the last 100 years naturopathic medicine has gained respect both from the public and other medical professionals as an effective, non-invasive management of chronic diseases.
