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.

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...

 

 

Naturopathy

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.

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...

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...

 

Naturopathy

Since I first started practicing in 1980, I’ve often had patients with allergies and sinus congestion from supermarket milk and cheese, switch to raw milk products from local cows or goats.  With this one change, the chronic allergies, sinus and middle ear congestion/infections often clear up, general health improves dramatically and they don’t catch every cold that comes around anymore.


Editor's Note: From increased fertility, greater strength, to all-around better health. This article talks about many benefits from milk that are lost in the process of pasteurization, and the laundry list of symptoms that can ensue instead.

Editor's Note: Dr. Marianne Marchese, Naturopathic Physician and Environmental Medicine Specialist, discusses some chemicals that we are commonly exposed to, why exactly we should be concerned about them, and how they can contribute to endocrine, neurological, and immune dysfuntions. And be sure to take notes on her Hello Kitty bottle... how to best store water (that is, in stainless steel, the Hello Kitty part is optional).

"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...

 

Editor's Note: With patient education comes empowerment. Learn how you can take a more active role in your IBS management through Naturopathic care.

 

Naturopathy


by Shawna Eischens

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. 

 

 

Naturopathy


by Nicole Cain, ND

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.
