What Is a Naturopath

Naturopathic physicians pride themselves in the knowledge/philosophy that nature and the universe has an innate intelligence, therefore disease is an adaptation to stressors rather than a random occurrence. We restore health by alleviating these stressors and also by stimulating that innate intelligence we call the vital force. We do this by using the most gentle of tools we call modalities.

(Que es un Naturópata)

(Los médicos naturópatas se enorgullecen del conocimiento/filosofía de que la naturaleza y el universo tienen una inteligencia innata, por lo tanto, la enfermedad es una adaptación a los factores estresantes en lugar de una ocurrencia aleatoria. Restauramos la salud aliviando estos factores estresantes y también estimulando esa inteligencia innata que llamamos fuerza vital. Hacemos esto usando las herramientas más suaves que llamamos modalidades.)
