Poll: What is the definition of Naturopathy?

November 12, 2009 Leave a comment

Naturopathy is one of those terms that seems to suffer from a bit of an identity crisis. Depending on the person or textbook, naturopathy can take on many different definitions and interpretations. It can be Holistic, or not. It can be spiritual, or not. It can be plant-based, or not. There seems to be as many answers to the question “what is naturopathy exactly” as there are people asking it.

So perhaps, as with so many things, Naturopathy is, on the grander scale, defined by its definor. I am interested to see what the general inclination of that more personal definition might be. If you have a moment, let me know what your definition is.

Your definition doesn’t fit? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
