Naturopathy is a complete system of natural healthcare. The principle belief is the body has an innate ability to heal itself if the conditions are right. Naturopaths are trained in the conventional medical sciences and pathology to recognize and treat diseases or imbalances of the body. Naturopathic medicine aims to improve health, prevent disease and treat illness by promoting healthy lifestyle practices and blending centuries-old knowledge with current scientific advances in the study of health and human systems.
In naturopathy it is believed that each individual has a multitude of differing factors influencing their health, thus treatment is individualized for each person. At Luminous Health I utilize nutrition, herbal medicine, and nutritional supplements to treat the individual as a whole rather than simply the symptoms presented. Education is paramount with advice on lifestyle and health practices assisting people achieve their goal in health and stress management.
I cooperate with all other branches of medicine, referring patients to other practitioners for diagnosis or treatment when appropriate.
