WHAT IS A NATUROPATHY? NATURE’S WAY
The word naturopath, coming from two English words “nature” and “path”, aptly means the path of nature . More precisely, naturopathy draws its basic principles from the observation of the phenomena of nature, from the study of biology, physiology and ecology.
Naturopathy is defined as the philosophy, art and science which aim to provide human beings with the highest degree of health possible, by teaching them to manage their lifestyles correctly. In fact, the health of the human being is intimately linked to nature and, consequently, it depends directly on respect for the laws of biology and ecology.
Hence the importance of establishing a plan of reform in one’s way of life adapted to one’s own conditions. From then on, living matter is actualized; it follows its normal course, that of achieving and maintaining within itself the highest level of integrity possible. If applicable, mechanisms for healing, scarring, detoxification, autolysis, self-regulation, etc. can spontaneously start or intensify. All these mechanisms are inherent in living matter; they are part of what is commonly called the instinct of self-preservation. In order to ensure this optimal level of health, the naturopath advises his clients on the appropriate application of natural health factors, such as diet, physical exercise, rest, sunshine, hygiene, stress management, emotional balance, etc.
