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.

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...

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.

From the mouth to anus is an enfolding of our skin.  As you know, our skin contains a layer of cells and microorganisms that protect us.  The gastrointestinal (GI) tract has the same.   Although it is inside our bodies, it is a protective lining of our internal organs from the outside environment.   When in optimal condition, the GI lining blocks the intrusion of pathogenic molecules from entering the bloodstream...

Healing is a dynamic process, a process that encompasses the whole-person, not isolated parts and systems. The goal of healing is to reestablish health by finding and treating the root cause of discomfort and disease...

The degree of poverty and environmental destruction in the world is quite the medical ethics issue that we are faced with today, for when we let any factor become a significant act of destruction against the planet and humanity; thereby, threatening the health, or even survival of either, we have a problem of ethics...

Statin medications are presently one of the most prescribed drugs in the United States because of their ability to lower cholesterol levels and presumed effects for the prevention of heart disease.

Two of the conditions routinely screened for in peri-menopause are osteopenia and osteoporosis. Osteopenia is most easily defined as the beginning stages of bone loss and osteoporosis as more severe bone loss with an increased fracture risk. Both are measured using hip and spine bone density measurements. There are many factors that contribute to bone health including decreasing hormone levels, the quality of the food we eat, exercise, age, familial history and body type...

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.

We are probably all aware that sun can burn the skin, and thus can be a contributing cause for carcinogenic (cancer) causing processes to occur in our body. Cancer is complex and is usually multi-factorial, not just from one cause. Sun burns can cause free radical damage, but if one has a high level of antioxidants to combat it, the damage done may not be so detrimental...


Editor's Note: Summer came a little late in some parts of the country, but here is some news you can use, and better late then never to save your skin.

While the blooming trees and colorful flowers popping up this time of year are beautiful, the pollen is also out in full force and affecting millions of people who suffer from seasonal allergies. Many of us think of testing cortisol levels for those patients who present with fatigue or insomnia, but did you know your patients' allergic reactions may also have an adrenal component?...


Editor's Note from Dr. Alisha Moadab: The season for allergies still continues, it also varies where you are at in the country. Many ailments have roots going back to the adrenals, allergies being one of them. If your adrenal glands are not functioning optimally you may be more predisposed to allergies amongst other problems, often the biggest symptom occuring is fatigue.

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....
