What is Naturopathy? A system of medicine blending natural and non-toxic therapies with current advances in modern medicine, covering all aspects and ages of family health. 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.

In the last two decades, a new paradigm for scientific inquiry has been developing based on the acceptance of simple things acting together in complex, network-like relations. Classical science, as exemplified by Newtonian mechanics, is essentially reductionist...

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.

Imagine all the toxins with which our body has to deal, whether it’s normal products of life’s processes, like carbon dioxide, or other factors, like air pollution. Sprinkle on the more subtle toxins like the economy or your in-laws. These toxins build up and, when our bucket is full and our ability to process them is overcome, they prevent our body from functioning optimally...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: As our largest organ, or skin reveals amazing things about the rest of our body. It's often the first sign that something is wrong. So, don't medicate it; listen to it! See Part 1.

Naturopathic Medicine is perhaps most distinguished from other medical systems by means of what is recognized as “Therapeutic Order.” It is something that sets Naturopathic physicians apart from the conventional medical professions, enriches diversity in medicine, allows for patient choice, is why this approach can be so helpful for so many chronic illnesses and can also help reduce health care costs.
