Homeopathic FAQs: How is homeopathy different from naturopathy?

Homeopathy is a specialized ancient form of natural medicine. Seeing a naturopath is like seeing a GP (general practitioner) of natural medicine. Homeopaths are specialized in homeopathy and therefore will give homeopathic remedies using the whole homeopathic system of medicine, not in an allopathic manner. Naturopaths (and anyone who buys homeopathic remedies at their local health food store) can choose remedies using an allopathic philosophy. However, homeopaths can use remedies incorporating the holistic principles of homeopathic healing learned in their four years of minimum training. You can read more in depth about some of these principles on our blog.
