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.

Garlic is one of those herbs that is always in my kitchen, and I seemingly try to incorporate it into all of my dishes whether it calls for it as an ingredient or not. I have all different types of garlic in my refrigerator and my pantry–I could probably start my own garlic store, but my favorite is definitely FRESH garlic...


Editor's Note from Dr. Samm Pryce: This article describes all the little known health benefits that you can get from just one little garlic bulb. It also gives the link between Dracula and why he hated garlic.




Editor's Note from Alisha Moadab: This is a great video showing a home walk through by a Naturopathic Doctor in which she goes room-to-room showing where chemicals can be causing ill harm to our families. Dr. Marchese does a great job explaining what it is and why it bad.

Tonification involves feeding the body's systems and cells regularly with small doses of nutrients in order to bring the body in to balance. The nutrients needed by each person will be different depending on what deficiencies or excesses of chemicals are present in their bodies. Liver tonics are predominantly used in balancing the chemical structure of the body. From our thorough, whole body diagnosis at the Naturopathic Medical Practice we can identify and provide the necessary remedial nutrients to restore the body's balance.





Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: Noted Naturopathic physician, Walter Crinnion, talks to us about what the problem is with pesticides. If you're on a tight budget and can't go 100% organic (or live in a place where organic is hard to find), he offers us easy-to-do solutions for working within those limitations. Be sure to check out his book "Clean, Green and Lean."

Gluten and wheat sensitivity have become much more prevalent in the general population.


There is no definitive lab test for food sensitivities, as they differ from true allergies. True food allergies are an immediate response mediated by the immunoglobulin, IgE; whereas, food sensitivities are delayed reactions that occur as a result of a different set of immunoglobulins, IgG, IgM, and IgA. In my clinic, I recommend a celiac profile for every patient, as even slightly elevated serum levels can provide clues for a sensitivity reaction and provide a baseline measure...

Earaches or otitis media are commonly seen in children from as early as 6 months of age until 7 years. These can be broken down into 3 types of earaches; serous, infective and external. Both infective and serous otitis often follow upper respiratory infections, but are also seen in children who bottle nurse while lying down and those who have been exposed to cold, windy weather. A strong association with chronic earaches and food allergies has been made, especially milk, dairy products and wheat. Breast fed children have less incidence of ear infections than do those who received formula or cows milk.

50 million people are affected annually, according to the American College of Allergy and Asthma. Costs associated with treating seasonal allergies are in excess of 1 billion dollars annually. It is alarming to me, that these numbers have been rising every year...

Q: How long do symptoms last and once I have recovered what is the risk of catching the flu again?


A: Flu symptoms usually subside after two to three days and disappear within a week. Once an individual has had the flu, their body will have produced antibodies that protect them from the same strain of virus for a prolonged period of time....

One of the most pervasive contributors to the multi-factorial cause of disease is stress. This topic is extensive and very well known to naturopathic and holistic practitioners...

Editor's Notes from Rebecca Snowden: In a wonderful exploration of the research behind physiological response to exposure to the natural world, Dr. Kurt Beil not only reminds us of, but proves to us as well, that nature is a medicine of necessity. Read Part 1: Back Ground and Theory.

The naturopathic profession holds the concept of Vis Medicatrix Naturae as one of its highest ideals. We define ourselves by an adherence to the philosophy that some power inherent within nature moderates the healing process, rather than by the use of specific modalities that control these processes...

Radiation is all the rage. It is a danger that makes us all feel vulnerable, insecure. It conjures images of Chernobyl and atomic blasts. At a more personal level, the fear of radiation is the fear of the consequences we imagine it might inflict: mutations, burns, cancer, and ultimately an early death. In short, we fear radiation because we fear dying of the disease it most commonly inflicts, cancer...


Editor's Note from Alisha Moadab: Radiation is important to be aware of. I recently started looking into a new cell phone and was able to research the different radiation levels and happy to have found the #2 rated for lowest radiation. Here Dr. Nigh discusses what you can do to cut your cancer risk when exposed to radiation.
