1000-700 BC

  • Yoga and Ayurveda have been a part of life in India for over 5000 years.  The theory of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements theory influence the principles of medicine as far back as 1000BC. In the Orient, an attitude of promoting health has long been established. Taoists claim Eastern Medicine to provide the "art of radiant health".  Naturopathic healthcare follows laws and principles rooted in traditional systems practiced for thousands of years and substantiated in the modern Western evidenced based medicine.  Naturopathy recognizes that in order to achieve health, all aspects of an individual need to be considered.
