Naturopathy, like other holistic therapies, is mindful of multiple systems within the body, and utilizes remedies found in nature, which are often more easily assimilated into the body, and are without the harmful side effects of some pharmaceuticals.While acute care medicine has its place, there is evidence that overall health can be better maintained through more natural means, including natural remedies, diet, nutrition and stress management.
