Naturopathy treatment goes back to Greek philosopher Hippocrates (2nd century B.C). According to the Hippocratic discipline of medicine, a patient should be considered as an organic whole.

Some doctors also implement methods such as Bio-Resonance, Ozone-Therapy and Colon Hydrotherapy as parts of naturopathic treatment.
