Hello Joe

A Classical Homeopath will treat a person usually with one remedy which is selected for you and is called your constitutional remedy. That would be the ideal for a classical homeopath, otherwise they will treat what they see with complex remedies or more than one remedy at a time. Homeopaths will also tell you more about nutrition and supplementation etc. Some clinical homeopaths, as what we have in SA qualified from our educational institutions, look at the person more clinically as a doctor does and will recommend certain simplex or complex homeopathic remedies.

A Naturopath treats the person more from a nutrition, supplementation and herbal aspect, but can and sometimes does use homeopathy as well. The Naturopath mentions this in one of the questions asked to him in his forum. Please visit his forum to see how he explains naturopathy.

Kind regards.
