NATUROPATHIC HEALTH

HIPPOCRATES WAS THE FIRST BELIEVER IN A LOGICAL SOLUTION TO LIFE’S PROBLEMS, INCLUDING HEALTH (BELIEVING A REASON EXISTED WHY ILLNESS HAD OCCURRED AS OPPOSED TO BECOMING ILL BEING BECAUSE ONE MIGHT HAVE DISPLEASED THE GODS). HIS TOOLS TO HELP WHEN ILL HEALTH STRUCK WERE HIS HANDS, SIMPLE TECHNIQUES SUCH AS POULTICES AND BATHS, AND THE PLANTS AND OTHER NATURAL SOURCES OF SUBSTANCES AROUND HIM. THE MORE RECENT ALLOPATHIC (CONVENTIAL) APPROACH GAINED A MONOPOLY EARLIER THIS CENTURY BYT PRIOR TO THAT THE TWO FORMS OF MEDICINE EXISTED TOGETHER, INFLUENCING EACH OTHER, COMING TOGETHER AND THEN BECOMING POLES APART.

NATUROPATHY ATTEMPTS TO RETAIN GOOD HEALTH RATHER THAN LET ILL HEALTH DEVELOP AND THEN SEEK RESUE TREATMENT; AND WHEN ILL HEALTH DOES OCCUR IT TRIES TO USE THE LEAST INVASIVE AND DESTRUCTIVE METHOD OF REGAINING HEATH AS FAR AS POSSIBLE. THIS REQUIRES AND ALLOWS GREATER KNOWLEDGE OF AND HENCE REPONSIBILITY FOR ONE’S OWN HEALTH THAN THE CURRENTLY CONVENTIONAL APPROACH. IN ITS BROADEST SENSE IT ENCOMPASSES ANY NON-INVASIVE FORM OF THERAPY NOT CURRENTLY USED BY CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE; AND INCLUDES ALL HERBALISM AND HOMEOPATHY, DIET AND NUTRITION, SELF HELP TECHNIQUES AND DAILY REGIMES, PHYSICAL THERAPY, AND SO FORTH.

AS RESEARCH INTO TREATMENT METHODS OTHER THAN PHARMACEUTICAL PREPARATIONS SLOWLY INCREASES IT IS PRODUCING A GROWING BODY OF REAL EVIDENCE THAT MANY ILLNESSES CAN BE TREATED VERY EFFECTIVELY WITH SIMPLE NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS (VITAMINS, MINERALS, TRACE ELEMENTS, OILS ETC.), HERBS AND BOTANICAL MEDICINES AND THE RANGE OF NATUROPATHIC TECHNIQUES. THE ADVANTAGES OF THESE TYPES OF MEDICINES ARE THEIR LACK OF SIDE EFFECTS, BEING NON-INVASIVE, AVAILABILITY TO ALL THE GENERAL PUBLIC, A LACK OF RELIANCE ON ANY ESTABLISHED CHAIN OF MEDICAL SERVICES, AND COST EFFECTIVENESS.

A SELECTION OF COMMON ILLNESSES THAT CAN BE ASSISSTED WITH NATUROPATHY ARE:

ASTHMA, ECZEMA, PSORIASIS, IRRITABLE BOWEL, COLITIS, CHRONS DISEASE, REYNAUD’S, ME, ALLERGIES, AMENORRHOEA, PMT, SINUSITIS, BRONCHITIS, ARTHRITIS, ACNE, COUGHS/COLDS, CATARRH, CONSTIPATION, TIREDNESS, HAEMORRHOIDS, CYSTITIS, RECURRENT INFECTIONS, HEARTBURN, INDIGESTION, WEIGHT PROBLEMS, CIRCULATION, VARICOSE VEINS, GOUT, RHEUMATICS, CANDIDA, IMMUNE WEAKNESS/ BEING RUN DOWN.

ACUPUNCTURE OFTEN OR NOT COMBINED WITH CHINESE HERBS FROM AN EXPERIENCED CHINESE MEDICINE PRACTITIONER IS VERY EFFECTIVE IN RAISING GENERAL HEALTH LEVELS AND STRENGTHENING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM AND GROWTH AND REPAIR SYSTEM; REDUCING THE NEED FOR MORE INVASIVE OR INTERVENTIONALIST TREATMENTS FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT WANT TO USE THESE TREATMENTS.

HERBAL MEDICINE USES NATUROPATHIC BOTANICAL COMPOUNDS, THAT ARE OFTEN MIMICKED BY THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY, TO INDUCE NATURAL HEALING AND REPAIR OF THE PATIENTS’ DISEASED ORGAN OR SYSTEM.

ALLERGY TESTING CAN IDENTIFY FACTORS THAT MAY BE WORSENING ILLNESSES AND DISEASE, OFTEN GREATLEY REDUCING THE SYMPTOMS AND DISEASE PROGRESS BY THE SUBSEQUENT ELIMINATION OF THE OFFENDING ALLERGENS.

HOMEOPATHY USES ‘LIKE FOR LIKE’ DILUTIONS OF REMEDIES THAT STIMULATE THE BODY TO HEAL ITSELF, AND RELIES UPON THE INDIVIDUAL DIAGNOSIS SKILL OF THE PRACTITIONER FOR EVERY CASE. GENERAL HEALTH IS RAISED BY STRENGTHENING THE HEALTH AND VITALITY OF THE PATIENTS’ BODY ENERGIES.

MANIPULATION AND NATUROPATHY HAVE BEEN INTRNICLY LINKED SINCE THEIR EARLIEST DAYS; IN THE 1800’S MANY  WERE NATUROPATHS. AN CAN DIAGNOSE AND THEN ADVISE YOU WHETHER YOU CAN SAFELY USE THE NATUROPATHIC APPROACH TO HELP YOU REMAIN HEALTHY OR GET OVER ANY ILLNESSES.
