Are you looking for an alternative natural health therapy? Naturopathy healing is the one for you. Learn more about naturopathy healing with All Things Healing naturopathy information articles online! Long before medical science was established, people relied on natural remedies to cure diseases. Today, even with the presence of different kinds of medical science, this kind of healing practice still exists but in a more formal and established form: naturopathy healing. Naturopathy healing is an alternative medical technique that focuses on natural remedies and natural healing therapies. Although naturopaths (the primary care physicians) conduct different kinds of diagnostic tests that conventional doctors employ, naturopathy focuses more on the holistic approach when it comes to improving one’s health. Natural health therapy is one of the major aspects of naturopathy. This kind of treatment is based on people’s traditional beliefs that nature has healing powers; therefore it mainly relies on nature’s healing properties when it comes to curing various diseases. The ability of the body to heal itself is also highlighted in naturopathy, and there are corresponding treatment modalities naturopaths especially use in this kind of practice. When you visit a naturopathic doctor, you can expect naturally-occurring and minimally-invasive treatment methods for your health problems. Surgeries and radiations are typically avoided as well as synthetic drugs and vaccinations. Lifestyle changes, diet advice, and natural health therapy may be given as part of the holistic approach. Several natural healing therapies may also be employed such as acupuncture, applied kinesiology, homeopathy, iridology and more. Naturopathy information states that naturopathy revolves around six core values, and such values are the oaths that naturopathic doctors live by. Today, naturopathy healing is especially prevalent in USA and Canada.

From a naturopathic perspective, the body functions as a logical organism that responds in a direct cause and effect relationship to its environment. In the case of auto-immunity and its symptoms, the immune system (the effect) is responding to something that appears to be “foreign” (the cause) in the body. Unfortunately, in the process of trying to remove the foreign substance, the body destroys its own tissue and auto-immunity develops.

Q: I have infertility, and I’ve been told that I may have PCOS. Can you explain what PCOS is, and tell me if there are any natural treatments for it?

 

PCOS is an abbreviation for “polycystic ovarian syndrome”. This syndrome is associated with female infertility as well as other conditions that include abnormal menstrual cycles, increased body weight,
insulin resistance, and excessive testosterone in the body (also known as hyperandrogenism).

Like all of the other tissues of the body, the brain becomes less resiliant with age. Free radicals,inflammation, diminishing circulation, and changes in brain chemical levels all contribute to cumulative damage to brain cells. Research is increasingly indicating that these mechanisms are critical in the development of age-related neurological changes such as declining memory and cognitive skills, increasing experiences of mental fatigue and depressive symptoms, and progressive loss of motor control. Eventually, these changes can develop into debilitating diseases including age-related dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease.


 

Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: Allergy and asthma rates are not being controlled by conventional medical care although it has decreased severity and rates of hospitalizations.  Dr. Baral gives a clear and concise explanation of how Naturopathic medicine is best equipped as the primary approach to control our country's allergy and asthma rates.

Raw honey eaten in small doses can be beneficial for the body. One of the oldest sweeteners known to man is raw organic honey. This differs from the processed honey that we are used to consuming which is similar to regular sugar and should be avoided. Only consume organic raw honey. With organic raw honey, the bees are not being fed high fructose corn syrup and no pesticides are used in the process.

One of the women I learned from is named Cascade Anderson Geller, she has helped to create the herbal medicine training at three of the accredited naturopathic medical schools. Cascade has been teaching people about “produce aisle medicine” lately and I thought you all might also appreciate the teachings.

 

Editor's Note: Dr. Jensen gives some great self-care tips in this article about poultices. Almost makes me want to go out and injure myself so I can try some of these!

Silver amalgam dental fillings are actually only 35% silver.  50% or more of the amalgam is mercury – which is the 2nd most toxic metal on this planet, and the most toxic non-radioactive metal.  The manifestations of chronic low-grade mercury poisoning tend to start 3 to 10 years after placing mercury in the mouth.


 

Editor's Note: This article explains some of the history of amalgam fillings, what they are made up of, and signs that they may need to be removed. Dr. Melos also offers some great resources on where we find more information about mercury exposure.

Studies show that the average American drinks an estimated 56 gallons of soft drinks each year. More than 15 billion gallons were sold in 2000. Soda accounts for more than one-quarter of all drinks consumed in the United States. In the past 10 years, soft drink consumption among children has almost doubled in the United States. Studies have linked soda to osteoporosis, obesity, tooth decay and heart disease.

Many of us have been incited to concern, even fear, about cholesterol levels. There has been an enormous media and medical push to reduce cholesterol levels in the past two decades. Most folks interested in lowering their cholesterol levels have been told this is a risk factor for premature death from cardiovascular disease. Many doctors, and of course all marketers of cholesterol-lowering drugs, believe having cholesterol above 200 means the patient is more likely to get a heart attack, or die from blocked arteries.

I get many questions in my classes, seminars and practice... "What vitamins should I take?"


This is a loaded question, but I've been able to recommend a good foundation for supplementation. This, of course, is dependent upon a good diet and lifestyle, which we'll probably go into another topic.


So here we go. The five pillars.

What do the conditions of high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, anxiety, and depression have in common? Mostly, in our society, they are managed by pharmaceutical medications, then considered treated.

 

Editor's Note: Looking beyond medication alone, this article describes ways, perhaps just as powerful, if not more, to control some of the more common chronic conditions we see today.
