Principles of Naturopathy

First do no harm – We take this tenet of naturopathy very seriously at Chiron Health Care. Before any treatment, we ensure that we know which organs are most vulnerable, and we make sure those organs are supported therapeutically.

The healing power of nature – The body possesses the inherent ability to restore health. Our role is to facilitate this process with the aid of natural, non-toxic therapies.

Discover and treat the cause, not just the effect – Symptoms are expressions of the body’s natural attempt to heal. Only by finding and removing the underlying causes of the illness can a lasting return to health be achieved.

Treat the whole person – The body has an incredibly deep wisdom with intricate systems of interrelationships between cells, organs, and systems. Only by understanding and treating the entire person, and meeting individual needs can we address the multiple factors and coping mechanisms in order to restore health.

The naturopath is a teacher – Our role is to educate and empower you to take responsibility for your health. A healthy cooperative relationship has therapeutic value, and the information you receive will help you to take care of yourself and your loved ones.

Prevention is the best ‘cure’ – We assess your risk factors and intervene appropriately to prevent illness. This will involve changes towards the most healthy lifestyle that you are able to maintain, as well as treatments to support organs and systems that are most vulnerable.
