Natural medicine is a science-based tradition that promotes wellness by identifying the unique aspects of each patient and then employing non-toxic natural therapies to restore his or her physiological, psychological, and structural balance. The emphasis of naturopathic therapies is to prevent and treat the causes of disease and to stimulate the healing power of body by using natural techniques and therapies.
AJS Therapy Naturopathy treatments apply natural therapies and operate within a wide spectrum of natural medicine approaches: fasting, diet therapy, nutritional planning, psycho-somatic and spiritual counselling, herbs, cupping, hydrotherapy and exercise.
Naturopathy works within a paradigm , which states that it is the patient that is in need of treatment, not the disease state or symptom. Naturopathy is interested in finding and treating origins of symptoms, thus it will often use elimination diet to identify possible food or chemical triggers (MSG, dairy, wheat).
