Naturopathy

The healing power of nature

Naturopathy is a system of healthcare which recognises the integrity of the whole person and is based on the following principles of healing:

  • First, do no Harm
  • The Healing Power of Nature
  • Identify and Treat the Cause
  • Heal the Whole Person
  • Naturopath as 'Teacher' or Educator
  • Prevention is the Best Cure

Naturopathy has a deep history of traditional philosophies, but also seeks to back up these philosophies with robust scientific evidence. Trained naturopaths are also informed by clinical experience, alongside the growing body of research evidence, when formulating treatment plans.

Qualified naturopaths undertake extensive education in a variety of health sciences including:

  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Chemistry
  • Biochemistry
  • Pathophysiology
  • Pharmacology
  • Physical Health Assessment
  • Herbal Medicine
  • Nutrition

In New Zealand, the Bachelor of Naturopathic and Herbal Medicine degree course includes supervised clinical practice in the final year of study.

There is currently no legislation around naturopathy, meaning that anyone can call themselves a naturopath.

Registered naturopaths belonging to a reputable NZ affiliation are suitably qualified, continue to update their education, and meet and respect New Zealand naturopathic standards.
