NATUROPATHY

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.

“Look Mom! No Hands!” After a pretty stressful couple of years, I have finally remembered this sort of a mantra that I used while in naturopathic medical school. It arose one year in the middle of another stressful period when I shared with a friend that I felt like I was on the “Roller Coaster of Life”. You know the period of anticipation at the beginning of a roller coaster, as you click, click, click up that first hill? Then the ride begins!

 

Editor's Note: While decreasing stress is optimal, still stresses will remain. Dr. Jensen gives us words of wisdom to help us handle all that life throws at us while limiting the undesired repercussions.

Treating the cause, we know, is finding the cure to our health issues. Food intolerance is one of the main CAUSES for health problems of any kind. We may sneeze or itch after eating certain foods, we may have an increase in phlegm in our throat or stomach pain, gas, bloating. Many of us have reactions to foods and think that simply removing the food(s) from our diet is the answer. The cure, however, can be found by asking WHY we have these food reactions...

Rosie O’Donnell and I have something in common.  Recently we both had the same health scare – chest pains.  I was luckier than Rosie.  Her pain turned out to be a heart attack.  Mine – we think – was indigestion.

I’m pretty careful about my food, so indigestion was a puzzle.  Was I eating too many of those delicious candy like but acidic cherry tomatoes from my backyard garden?  Was it stress?  Or lifting too many heavy boxes during my move from Philadelphia to New Hope (don’t ya love that name…

Years of research has told us to stop eating so much salt due to the strong connection between high salt intake with heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. However, some recent European research is now indicating something quite different.

As a kid, my mom warned me about things like sitting too close to the TV, going outside with a wet head, and not letting my food digest before swimming. She even convinced me that eating Pop Rocks and drinking soda at the same time would cause my stomach to explode. While I can attest to the fact that Pop Rocks and soda do not, in fact, cause any bodily damage (other than a fun party-in-your-mouth effect), what about those other kernels of motherly advice? Is there any truth to them or were they all just scare tactics?

My teen daughter has had a little skin rash for the past 2 months. We have treated it by optimizing her digestion with probiotics, eliminating sugar and gluten, and applied salve and other pastes to the lesion. Everything has kept it at bay but nothing has made it go away. Then I thought about zinc...

One of the biggest obstacles I hear patients describe in their efforts to eat right is just how hard it is to find quality snacks when they’re at work all day or on-the-go. By quality, I mean mainly foods not high in sugar, not made up entirely of carbohydrates, and that are nutrient and protein-rich. Understandably, the pickings are slim out there, but once in the habit of packing your own snacks, you’ll find the obstacle is relatively easy to overcome...

Unfortunately, there is one lifestyle habit that is rarely assessed and is now known to be a major contributor to both depression and disease and a normal part of American life: sleep deprivation. Studies indicate that as much as 74 percent of Americans do not get enough sleep each night.

 

Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: Sleep is an essential aspect of lifestyle that warrants close attention. Dr. Patrick illuminates several reasons why it pays to sleep well and what it could mean to the body & mind if you don't.

L-theanine, an amino acid found in tea leaves, helps reduce stress, promote relaxation and improve the quality of sleep. L-theanine is found in tea leaves in low concentrations (less than 2 percent), which means that effective dosage levels (of 100 – 200mg/day) cannot be delivered from drinking tea. Recently, animal studies and human studies have shown that a high dose of L-theanine (100 mg) combined with caffeine about at the level of a single cup of tea (40 mg), can help to improve attention, memory, and cognition...
