The principles of Naturopathy are based on Hippocrates and his approach to health.
Naturopathy is defined by the approach the practitioner takes in treating you, rather than they therapies they use. This is governed by a set of principles including:
Treatment plans devised by the Naturopath are based on empirical use and current scientific research, ensuring that every treatment and nutritional suggestion is both safe and, where possible, validated by research to ensure benefit.
Throughout the three year BSc at the University of Westminster the Naturopath treating you has, alongside training in diverse therapies, also undertaken advanced teaching in the science of
anatomy and physiology. In accordance with the governing body, a naturopath will have at least 400 hours clinical experience that involves observing consultations and being a part
of a care team, as well as being the lead practitioner with their own patients. During the final year, the Naturopath accumulates a minimum of at least 200 hours to ensure competence.
Continued Professional Development (CPD) is a compulsory yearly requirement.
