What is Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic medicine, or naturopathy, is considered the oldest known healing system, which is  based on prevention, support, and optimal health through the use of all natural, non-invasive therapies and natural substances that encourage an individual's God-given ability to heal and  recover from the ongoing effects of the environment, lifestyle, and improper or bad dietary habits. By focusing on an individual's physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, social, spirituality and other factors, naturopathy encourages healthy choices and the elimination of underlying stressors and other causes of illness. On February 7,1931, the following Act of Congress was adopted to define naturopathic medicine. Although not passed by the Senate it serves as a formal recognition of the benefits of this natural health system.

Like its human counterpart, animal naturopathy is a health system that focuses on natural wellness. Unlike holistic veterinary medicine, which has its roots in conventional veterinary medicine, animal naturopathy encompasses an approach based entirely on nature and natural  remedies.

Animals have a God given ability to heal themselves if given access to the correct plants and minerals found in the wild. Because domesticated animals no longer

have access to forage what they need when they need it, our pets depend on us to make these remedies available to them.. Animal self-medication, also known as applied zoopharmacognosy is a method of offering companion animal a variety of herbs and essential oils, tailored for dogs or  cats , and for general heath or specific ailments.
