Course Overview

Naturopathy is based on a profound philosophy that the body has an innate ability to heal itself given the right circumstances. The fundamentals of Naturopathy are well known and were even practised by Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine. His therapeutic approach was based on the “healing power of nature.” With the radical changes to this philosophy in the practices of modern medicine, a new system of medicine was born in late 1890s, to be known as Naturopathy and the credit goes to a German physician called Benedict Lust.

Naturopaths primarily treat the person rather than the disease, using life style modification, diet, nutritional supplements and herbal remedies. The body is viewed more than the sum of biochemical processes and the connections between mind and body are highly regarded.
