Naturopathic doctor with homeopathic criteria


Homeopaths design, develop and implement therapeutic interventions for curative purposes based on homeopathy. They aim to improve the physical and psychological recovery processes of individuals with manifest conditions, whether as specific activities or as complementary activities, as a part of an overall health programme. Homeopathy is a therapeutic method that treats patients with remedies (from natural substances) which, administered to a healthy person in very low doses, would cause symptoms similar to those that the homeopath intends to cure in the patient, based on the principle of the law of similars.


  • Take a patient's medical history or interpret his or her diagnosis in order to establish the programme and specifically direct treatment sessions.
    Examine a patient and diagnose his or her condition based on the principles of homeopathy. According to the protocol of homeopathic medicine, the diagnosis does not only refer to symptoms, but also investigates the psychological and environmental aspects of the patient.

    Identify and classify the main features of the patient's personality and character.
