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.

"Health begins in the colon" is a frequent saying among naturopathic physicians. Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is prevalent in the U.S. because our diet consists mostly of processed foods such as white bread, white pasta, white rice, refined sugar and fast foods...

Naturopathy

The stomach is designed to be an acidic environment to facilitate the breakdown of food. This acidic pH can be altered by factors such as an overgrowth of H. pylori, stress, and food sensitivities. Since acid is required for proper digestion, it’s not the acid that’s the problem, but the lack of tone at the junction of the esophagus and stomach (lower esophageal sphincter) that allows even small amounts of acid to sneak back up into the esophagus.

 

Editor’s Note: When it comes to certain heartburn cases, there are numerous ways Naturopathic Medicine can address the underlying problem without going straight to medications. In fact, for those cases, medications may even further complicate the picture. Shawna Eischens tells us why in this article, "Rethinking Reflux."

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.

A 37 year old female came into my office and sat down across from me, a tissue clenched in her hands. She began to describe her depression, which began several years ago with the passing of her father. She had a hard time going to work in the mornings, and stated that she had no motivation to go out and spend time with her friends...

 

Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: Dr. Cain is an amazing physician, so I'm not surprised that she gets amazing results with her patients. Homeopathic medicines are FDA-approved medicines with no side effects but for chronic conditions, should be prescribed by a homeopath or naturopath. You'll enjoy this lighthearted case study.

The Pap test, also called Pap smear, is used to find cervical abnormalities long before they become actually a threat to your well-being. The Cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens into the vagina (birth canal). A major cause of cervical cancer appears to be a virus: Human (HPV), which is transmitted sexually. Cervical cancer starts as changes called “dysplasia”, a precancerous phase, are detectable on the Pap smear...

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.

Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: What would it to get this school on the right track? This school receives kids who've been expelled from other schools. Yet, they have no weapons, suicides, or expulsions. Why? It's what the kids are eating. Can school violence be prevented? Appleton school district shows us how.
