Naturopathy is an alternative form of medicine which uses a combination of herbal remedies, tinctures and other natural treatments to promote healing and wellbeing. Tinctures are concentrated mixtures of herbs or plants that have been soaked in alcohol or glycerin for several weeks – this creates a powerful liquid extract that can be used to treat many different ailments. Herbal medicine involves using various parts of plants and their extracts to treat medical conditions, both acute and chronic. Naturopathic practitioners may use any combination of these three methods to create effective treatment plans for their patients. Each approach has its own unique advantages, but when combined they offer comprehensive health care solutions for those looking to explore non-conventional treatments.
