Human beings have remarkable recuperative powers that can heal the body on its own without external chemical or surgical interference, which simply suppresses symptoms but does not heal nor remove the root cause of the disease. Naturopathy seeks to heal the body by promoting its own internal processes.
At YO1, our Naturopathy program offers customized guidance on your healing journey to make the rest of your life the best of your life. Highly credible and respected practitioners and therapists will educate you about internal hygienic conditions like proper digestion, elimination of mineral waste through the kidneys, waste elimination through the intestines, sweating through the skin, and carbon dioxide elimination through the lungs. These detoxifying processes paired with total rest allow the body the opportunity to address underlying conditions and regain its health.
Advance your journey of self-care and well-being at YO1 through a variety of healing therapies that include natural dietetics and fasting, hydrotherapy, mud therapy, reflexology, massage, and acupuncture. These holistic therapies will help you reduce stress, feel revitalized, and provide you with the positive lifestyle habits you need to profoundly better your life.
