What is a Naturopath?
A Naturopath is a holistic specialist that studies the individual person. They evaluate and assess the person's entire history; medical, mental health, lifestyle, spirituality, and everything that creates the foundation of our individual existence and experiences. Naturopathic approaches health with day-by-day foundational changes, bringing the entire self back into balance and shifting the internal and external forces in order to create personalized health and wellness.
