" Naturopathy does not offer a magic cure. Positive results come from positive behavior changes and an understanding that if one has had an ailment for several years, it may take several months to see an improvement. This is because the Naturopathic physician is trying to stimulate the patient's own system to address the imbalance(s) that have produced poor health. Often long-term underlying disturbances, such as subacute, nutritional deficiences or excesses, rather than the presenting health problem, must be corrected in order to allow the body to reassert its natural state of optimal health."
