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 most common questions I see in my office is concerning vaccinations. The fear-based campaign (on both sides!) has made it extremely difficult for parents to feel confident about decisions regarding how and when to vaccinate...what about new vaccines, such as the H1N1 (Swine Flu)?...

ATH Asst. Editor of Naturopathy

Mainstream America has become more and more familiar with acupuncture over the past few decades. Not as much familiarity persists about electroacupuncture though. In fact, often when I talk to people about it, they get a look on their face as if I am talking about some horrible electrifying torture shock device. There are two types of currents used in electroacupuncture, microamp (microcurrent) and milliamp...

Naturopathy


by Dr. Patrick Donovan

Identifying and removing food intolerances and dietary promoters of inflammation is one of the first steps to take in the treatment of IBD. This means removing gluten if celiac is suspected and removing allergic foods. The intestinal reactions from these food products can worsen already present symptoms of IBD and further fuel the already existing inflammation making it harder to resolve...

Blood work must be done and should include complete blood count, blood chemistry, iron studies, nutrient evaluation, and inflammatory markers.

Naturopathy


by Dr. Patrick Donovan

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is an umbrella term used to describe a group of inflammatory disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Each of these disorders involves some degree of inflammation (redness, swelling, erosion and sometimes bleeding) of the gastrointestinal mucosa or lining that commonly leads to ulceration of the mucosa to varying degrees. The inflammation is usually a result of an immune reaction of the body against its own intestinal tissue. Therefore, the diseases included in IBD are considered to be autoimmune disorders...

Homeopathy is a system of achieving optimal health based on the beliefs of Vitalism. Vitalism, unlike mechanistic views, sees the person as an actual being (as opposed to a mere machine) whom is guided through existence by a single, unifying, driving force called the "vital force." It is this force that is in charge of keeping all parts of the organism operational...
