Naturopathy is a holistic system of treatment based on the healing power of nature. On the one hand naturopathy focuses on supporting the body's own healing abilities, and on the other it empowers individuals to make lifestyle changes necessary for the best possible health.

Naturopathy goes back to the 18th- and 19th-century natural healing systems such as hydrotherapy (water therapy), which was popular in Germany and nature cure, developed in Austria.
