What is the difference between Homeopathy and a Naturopathy?

Unique and complementary health care modalities

Naturopathic Medicine philosophy is based on the healing power of nature. Dr. Benedict Lust, the father of Naturopathy in America, taught hot and cold hydrotherapy treatments to cure chronic disease. I have ended my showers in cold water since studying naturopathic medicine in 1994. It is rejuvenating. All naturopathic colleges teach homeopathy as a therapy.

Homeopathy is an energetic medicine based on physical, mental and emotional symptoms. The closer the symptoms reflect the remedy, the greater the cure. For instance upset digestion can be related to anxiety creating butterflies in your stomach or could be due to a parasite. The cure comes in finding the remedy similar to the symptoms.
