Naturopathic sciences are a sustainable approach to health-care, integrating modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural therapies. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and address the underlying cause of a disorder. Symptoms of a disorder are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic science emphasizes disorder as a process rather than as an entity. By adopting the naturopathic approach, you will help your body to heal naturally and achieve optimum health.
Naturopathic science can address a variety of acute and chronic conditions.

“My goal for this Centre is to form a group of independent healthcare practitioners that together will help their patients. I believe it is important to make sure the body, mind, and spirit are healthy.”
Naturopathic science is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of health sciences. Kadeja focuses on prevention and on the use of natural substances and modalities that support and stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself. She works effectively in conjunction with conventional treatments to reduce side effects and improve outcomes.
The primary goal of naturopathic science is to address the cause of your symptoms, rather than simply treat or suppress them. Kadeja considers the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of the patient when determining the fundamental cause of your health issues taking the whole person into consideration, then develops and offers a plan.
