Naturopathy is a system of alternative medicine that involves treating various diseases and conditions without the use of typically prescribed medication. With naturopathy, diseases and conditions are treated through lifestyle change and natural therapies such as a controlled diet, exercise, herbal medicine and natural techniques to reduce stressors on the body. Focusing on the improvement of overall physical and psychological well-being, the key focus of naturopathy is healing the body naturally through identifying and treating the underlying cause of health issues.
Addressing the cause of your health issues via Naturopathy
Typically, when a patient is suffering from an illness or has concerns about their health, they visit a doctor for an assessment of their condition. While it’s important to seek medical attention if you are concerned about your health, the common solution of prescription medication is often focused on treating symptoms, instead of addressing the cause of a person’s health issues.
In addition to not addressing the cause of a person’s health issues, taking prescription medication to relieve the symptoms of a condition can have serious side effects including addiction, nausea and the emergence of secondary health issues. These side effects and focus on treating symptoms instead of treating the cause is what has prompted people to seek holistic treatments for their health issues through a naturopath or nutritionist. Sydney is home to several leading naturopaths who specialise in treating a variety of diseases and conditions, each with their own specialties.
