General Natural Therapies Information and Facts
What is Natural Therapy?

Naturopaths aim to restore optimal health by natural means, free of side-effects, and obviously free of drugs and free of harm of any kind.
Prospective patients should make sure that their practitioner of choice has proper Diplomas and Membership certificates. - Private Health Insurances will only refund for registered practitioners.
A Naturopath is trained in differential diagnostics, and will refer patients to a medical Doctor for further tests if need be.
While Naturopaths recognizes that allopathic health care is, at times, necessary, they understand that many accepted allopathic treatments may be harmful, have side effects or are ineffective in promoting health.
Naturopaths are often called "Holistic Practitioners", because they believe that a patient has to be seen and treated as a whole being and not just as separate parts which may present certain symptoms.

Most categories within the Natural Therapy field have an underlying philosophy of treating holistically, meaning treating the whole person, not just a part of it. This is contrary to the medical system which treats symptoms and the individual parts of a whole being in isolation.
Typical modalities which are associated with the term Natural Therapy are all the "Traditional Medicine" modalities such as:
