Often used as a synonym for natural medicine, naturopathy is a philosophy rather than a treatment modality. Practitioners trained in colleges of naturopathy work on the basis that the body is a self-healing organism given the right conditions. Naturopaths use dietary therapy as their first and foremost treatment, closely followed by herbal medicine. Some naturopaths are also trained in osteopathy and other therapies.

Linda Lazarides is Course Director of the School of Modern Naturopathy and author of eight books on health, nutrition and naturopathy.
