  1. 1. BASIC INFORMATION ABOUT NATUROPATHY AND WHAT IT CAN DO FOR YOU
  2. 2. WHAT IS NATUROPATHY? Naturopathy is a form of health care that can be viewed as a science, art and philosophy. It is a system that is always changing due to constant self-assessment and a desire to incorporate and use the best methods from a variety of healing disciplines.

  3. 3. IS A NATUROPATHIC PRACTITIONER AS WELL TRAINED AND RELIABLE AS A MEDICAL DOCTOR? Naturopathy practitioners are bound by the Hippocratic oath to do no harm, just as medical doctors are. A naturopathic practitioner attends university to receive a degree in a field of conventional medicine. More info on: http://www.mynaturopathgoldcoast.com.au/naturopathy#content
  4. 4. WHAT DOES A NATUROPATHIC PRACTITIONER DO? A practitioner of naturopathic medicine is called and ND. He or she works to help patients attain wellness holistically with a winning combination of healthy lifestyle and standard medicine.

  5. 5. WHAT IS HOLISTIC WELLNESS? Holistic treatment of wellness involves addressing the needs of the whole patient rather than treating problems with systems in isolation. In fact, an ND focuses more on understanding the patient than on understanding the symptoms of illness. More info on: http://www.mynaturopathgoldcoast.com.au/naturopathy#content
  6. 6. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU VISIT AN ND? First, he or she will perform a thorough exam, which will include an in depth interview. ND's are trained to listen carefully as it is believed that simply being heard and understood is a big step toward wellness. More info on: http://www.mynaturopathgoldcoast.com.au/naturopathy#content
  7. 7. Once the patient understands the nature of the situation, the ND and the patient will work together to devise a plan of treatment. This plan might involve the use of alternative therapies, establishing a program of exercise, improving the diet, adding supplements and using homeopathic.

  8. 8. WILL NATUROPATHY HELP WITH CHRONIC ILLNESS AND SERIOUS ILLNESS? People suffering from chronic and serious conditions do very well with naturopathic treatment because, by its very nature, it is ongoing. When a person is seriously ill and/or has a chronic condition, it is usually the result of a lifetime of poor habits. More info on: http://www.mynaturopathgoldcoast.com.au/naturopathy#content
