Naturopathy is a whole medical system combining theory (philosophy and principles) and practice that uses an array of natural therapies to support healing and maintain health.
Naturopaths aim to treat the underlying causes of illness and disease. The core principle of "healing through nature" guides the naturopath’s use of nutrition, dietary counselling, herbal medicine, manual therapies, flower essences, lifestyle education and homeopathy.
Students experience a holistic learning environment, broadening their studies across biological sciences in order to understand the human body and its functions. Importance is also placed on social sciences including psychology and counselling, nutrition and dietary planning, botany and herbal medicine studies, diagnostic techniques and clinical skills and extensive clinical practice in Endeavour's Wellnation Clinics.
Many naturopath’s work in private practice, managing their own business and personal clients. Naturopaths may also work in multi-disciplinary clinics, health food stores, pharmacies and day spas or retreats as practitioners. Graduates are eligible for professional recognition with a number of Australian natural health associations and can expand into other industries, such as product development, education, professional writing, natural health research and product sales and marketing.
