A naturopath is a central person working with a person’s vitality to regain homeostasis (maintain inner balance). The naturopath is somewhat of a generalist in some approaches, but well-versed in the orthomolecular approach, phytotherapy and hydrotherapy.

Naturopaths refer to other professionals such as physicians, osteopaths, acupuncturists, homeopaths, massage therapists, nutritionists/dieticians, etc. The naturopath knows the limits of his or her actions, and refers to a qualified professional in his or her field to best meet the patient’s needs.

In no case can a naturopath replace your family doctor. In case of emergency, please refer to your family doctor or to the hospital.
