Naturopathy is a natural method of treatment that is not associated with the prescription of modern synthetic drugs , which block the symptoms but do not cure the causative factor. Our treatment includes: proper individual nutrition, vitamin therapy, homeopathy, herbology, and all kinds of Chinese medicine technique.
What is the essence of your diagnosis?
- We use the most modern computer technology with detailed printout of organ’s and system’s conditions. Also this allows us to find out patient’s sensitivities to food and environment, ability to assimilate vitamins and minerals. Based on this, we make an individual plan of detoxification, repair and rebuilding of body organs and functions. We use all natural methods of getting rid of allergies. Besides modern technology we incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis: 12 pulse taking, tongue diagnosis and a variety of so-called "little things" that are in fact very important.
