Naturopathy is a holistic approach to wellness believing that the body has the ability to heal itself given the right conditions. It is based on the principle of treating each person individually and as a whole not based on symptomology. Naturopathy focuses on prevention medicine uncovering dis-ease long before it has become a diagnosable pathology.
Kinesiology literally means the study of movement. It combines modern knowledge of the physical body and the intricate functioning of the brain, with ancient knowledge of the bodies energy systems.

Genetics has always been believed to be a fixed set of instructions. However, new research is showing that there is also what is called gene expression, and this is where environmental factors and the foods we eat can affect our genes positively or negatively. These areas of study include: EPIGENETICS, that is, how external factors influence turning genes on when they should be off or off when they should be on; and NUTRIGENOMIC, which is the study of nutrition and its interaction with genes and how it can impact your health.
