|Naturopathy is a type of primary health care devoted to using natural materials and remedies to treat various disorders and diseases in a patient. Naturopathic medicine is usually practiced by licensed physicians who have been trained by accredited schools. Every aspect of a disease or a disorder, including diagnoses, treatment and prevention, can be treated by naturopathic doctors. Naturopathic doctors may use herbal medicine, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and Eastern philosophies to formulate a proper course of treatment.
One of the main goals of naturopathic doctors is to identify the underlying cause of an illness. They may examine physical, genetic, emotional and dietary factors that may have contributed to patient's present state. With natural remedies, they may suggest modifications to a patient's exercise regime and dietary habits and may advocate lifestyle changes.
