General Meeting of the integrative association of naturopaths.

.

 

The Hong Kong Naturopathic Association

 

Naturopathic Medicine emphasises disease prevention and the promotion of optimal health through natural therapeutics. It encourages the body's innate self-healing process called the "vis medicatrix naturae" by blending centuries-old knowledge of natural therapies with current scientific advances in health and human systems. Its scope of practice includes all aspects of family care, from pediatrics to geriatrics.

 

Naturopathic Doctors (ND's) are the most extensively trained practitioners in alternative medicine. In addition to the basic medical sciences and conventional diagnostics, naturopathic training includes many alternative medicine modalitiees. Naturopathic Doctors tailor care to the individual patient, emphasising prevention and self-care.

 

Naturopathic Doctors are primary care physicians clinically trained in natural therapeutics. However, ND's cooperate with all branches of medicine and refer and interact with medical doctors and surgeons when appropriate. Our practice is based on the same basic medical science foundation that a conventional medical practice is. It is the philosophies and approaches to treatment that differ considerably.

 

The six principles that guide the therapeutic methods and modalities of naturopathic medicine include:
