Why Natural and Holistic Health
Natural and holistic health provides an alternative approach to conventional medicine, and focuses on the entire body while looking for the root cause of illness. Individuals with chronic conditions or those interested in avoiding pharmaceuticals, typically benefit from natural health practices and philosophy.
Natural health, as practiced by Traditional Naturopaths, incorporates unique, individualized assessment of physical, emotional, and environmental factors to identify opportunities to improve health.
