Naturopathy considers that the body heals itself, unless damage, dysfunction and degeneration are too advanced. Even then, functional improvement, or a delay of further decline, may be possible.
The General Council and Register of Naturopaths (GCRN) is the leading registering body for Naturopaths in the United Kingdom. It was first incorporated as the Nature Cure Society of Great Britain in 1925 and has been in existence in its present from since 1963.
The GCRNs key function is to enhance public protection by setting standards for registration.
Naturopathy is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.
Effective CPD should ensure that practitioners stay up to date on the latest research and advances in healthcare relevant to maintaining safe practise.
