Naturopathic philosophy favours a holistic or whole person approach with non-invasive treatments. Rainbow Herbs philosophy will always follow this method in all of its dealing with patients.
The principles of Naturopathy were first used by the by the Egyptian herbalists. They believed in assessing all aspects of a person and took into consideration the whole person to identify and treat the cause, and not just the symptoms.
