Naturopathic wellness is a distinct form of wellness that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of healing. It is the art and science of natural healing using traditional methods, proactive prevention, comprehensive assessment and wellness education based on the each individual.  All aspects of the person are taken into account - mental, physical and environmental. The guiding principles are focused on - do no harm, the healing power of nature, identify and treat the cause,  treat the whole person, healer as teacher.​​
