What is Naturopathic Nutrition?

Naturopathic Nutrition is the therapeutic use of nutrient-dense foods to enhance health and prevent disease. 


The optimal diet is composed of nutrient-rich foods, should be as health promoting as possible, and should contain the following  attributes:  whole, alive, fresh, varied, non-toxic, scarce, endogenous, naturally-flavored and simple. 


  • Eating whole foods provides all the nutrition available in a plant or animal.

  • Natural food is alive and fresh.

  • A natural diet is varied, from meal to meal, from day to day, from season to season; this allows for some protection from developing food allergies.

  • A natural diet is non-toxic.

  • The food in a natural diet is scarce, and over-consumption is less likely with whole meat and fish, whole fruit and vegetables.

  • Natural food is endogenous – locally grown or harvested; it is a better match between the content of essential fat of the foods in local plants and animals, and the fat needs of the consumer of those foods.

  • Natural food is naturally flavored, not artificially over-processed.

  • A natural diet is simple.  Making and preparing food ourselves is the only guarantee to knowing the ingredients used.
