Massage Therapy In many aspects, naturopathy is “common sense applied to health”. The basic principle is to have tremendous innate healing abilities, and our systems will always attempt to overcome an Illness and restore balance. In naturopathy, these attempts are encouraged by utilizing such natural factors such as diet, exercise and relaxation, fresh air and the use of water (hydrotherapy). The general driving force of treatment is to bring back the healthy conditions of a patient as far as possible, and equally to advocate prevention rather than cure. Increasingly nowadays, ill health is considered to be boosyed by the environmental factors such as pollution, so an individual can only do so much to keep him healthy, and wider measures may well need to be campaigned for. Nevertheless, a lot can be done through self support action.
