Naturopathy and HIV

Naturopathy blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It uses natural substances and the body’s own healing powers to treat and prevent illness. Naturopaths view the symptoms of illness as warnings of lifestyle flaws or imbalances in the body. Naturopathic treatments are prescribed based on extensive reviews of an individual’s lifestyle and nutritional requirements. Many naturopaths are also trained in acupuncture, herbal treatments, massage, manipulation and homeopathy as well as nutritional counselling.

Naturopaths are the generalists of the complementary medicine world, employing methods derived from a variety of different healing traditions. Visiting a naturopath may help you decide which complementary therapies are right for you.
