What is naturopathy for children?
Naturopathy, or Naturopathic Medicine, is a form of natural medicine based on a belief in vitalism, which states that a special energy called vital energy or vital force guides bodily processes such as metabolism, reproduction, growth, and adaptation. Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic approach and seeks to find the least invasive measures necessary for symptom improvement or resolution, thus encouraging minimal use of drugs.
Naturopathy is then aimed at helping children maintain this newly acquired health for life through regular Naturopathic assessment and care.
