Naturopathy or “Heilpraktik” in German is an umbrella name for diverse, natural holistic healing modalities.
Holistic healing has a wide focus that extends from the disease, health complaints and symptoms over to emotional states and reactions, to psychological and mental problems, past traumatising experiences and also social behaviour. Holistic healing is not limited to treating a single symptom or disease but it helps the whole person, all the symptoms and the root causes of their condition.

Discovering Dubai naturopathy treatment
Naturopathy aims to achieve overall wellness of the body, mind and spirit. It is believed to have been first used in 400 BC by the Hippocratic School of Medicine, which was founded by Hippocrates, a renowned Greek philosopher and the Father of Western Medicine.
Hippocrates advocated that the entirety of an individual should be examined to identify the cause of an illness, and that healing can be found and achieved through natural methods. As such, naturopathy touches on the whole lifestyle of a person, including diet, exercise, work habits, and even exposure to environmental pollution, among other factors.
The principles of naturopathy include the following:
• Nature possesses healing power.
• Determine the cause of an illness (e.g., physical or emotional) and treat it accordingly.
• Avoid treatments that will cause side-effects and unnecessary harm to a person’s physiological well-being.
• The physical, mental and emotional health of a person is taken into consideration in a naturopathic treatment.
• A naturopathic physician educates and encourages a patient to be proactive in achieving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
• Naturopathy upholds the principle that “prevention is better than cure.” Given this, a naturopathic physician will help a patient identify and remove the possible causes of diseases, such as toxic substances and unhealthy habits. As such, a lifestyle change may also be prescribed.
