    Naturopathic Principles: Treat the Cause

    Date: 29-09-2021

    Welcome to the third instalment of our naturopathic philosophies series. The third principle is Treat the Cause. Identifying and treating the cause is based on the assumption that health and disease happen for a reason. Some of these reasons include genetics and physiology, diet, lifestyle, social-economic status, one’s environment, previous medical intervention, resilience, social support and spiritual connection. Naturopathy works from the perspective that health can be improved by reducing the number of factors that place a strain on the body and interfere with its ability to heal and return to normal functioning.
