NATUROPATHY - DEFINITIONS
"Naturopathy is a system of medicine which seeks to facilitate and promote the bodies inherent
self-healing mechanisms.The procedures of naturopathic medicine may range over a wide spectrum
of modalities which are always non-toxic and non-suppressive and which are based on nutrition and
dietetics,structural readjustment and physical therapies and psychological counselling.
Roger Newman Turner - "Naturopathic Medicine" (ISBN 095391510-7).
"Basically,disease is thought by naturopaths to have one major cause-the breakdown of the
body's normal balance.
The particular type of illness a person suffers may be the result of various bacteria,viruses,
allergies,or other outside factors.But these are held to be of secondary importance to the
patients weakness and lack of resistance."
"Naturopathic diagnosis is more concerned with establishing why your health has broken down
than with putting a name to the illness".
