From a naturopathic perspective, health and ill-health are not two separate states of being. It is a continuum. This continuum allows a patient to move from a state of health to ill-health or from ill-health to health. At any point in time, if vitality, willingness and the lifestyle factors are present, a person's innate healing power works to sustain life and restore health.
The health continuum is part of the transformation between health and disease.
