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.

Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: What would it to get this school on the right track? This school receives kids who've been expelled from other schools. Yet, they have no weapons, suicides, or expulsions. Why? It's what the kids are eating. Can school violence be prevented? Appleton school district shows us how.




Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: It's amazing what you can learn from the internet--just ask Jack Andraka. Using only information available on the internet, hard work, and ingenuity, he devloped a test that detects pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer. Not only does it take 5 minutes, but it costs pennies. The first step, of course, is preventing cancer. But hopefully his test will become a routine screening procedure for people worldwide.

Despite the fact that the U.S. Center for Disease Control (CDC) advocates a seasonal flu shot for everyone, the reality is that not everyone feels comfortable with this recommendation. I know that myself and many other health experts do not endorse widespread vaccination programs for the seasonal flu (as well as the H1N1 vaccine). Not getting a flu shot does not mean that you do not have any protection from the flu...

Enzymes are the “spark plugs” of life.  Enzymes initiate every biochemical reaction in the body.  The enzymes that are naturally abundant in raw, uncooked food cause that food to be digested when we eat it.

The most common question I see in my office is regarding vaccinations. My role is not to tell the parents what to do, but to provide information and ways to minimize the adverse effects that vaccinations can cause. Every child is different, and it is important to find a health care provider that can evaluate your individual risk. Below are a few suggestions to help...




Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: This is what I think to be a well-articulated video describing the differences in training and qualifications between a Naturopathic Physician and a Traditional Naturopath. Regarding the training of the Traditional Naturopath, the video estimates their coursework to be approximately 10 courses. To my knowledge, the curriculum can be as much as 30 courses; however, the bottom line Dr. Ferguson seems to be trying to convey is that there is a huge difference between the track that might be approximately one full year of undergraduate coursework online leading to an “ND” and the track that is at least 4 years of undergraduate coursework plus 4 years of an accredited doctorate medical education leading to an “ND.” Consumers seeking Naturopathic care should be well-informed of these differences.




Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: Dr. Paul Mittman, President and CEO of the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, offers us his perspectives on the recent Stanford study on organic foods, and additionally offers us strategies on how to shop smart but without spending an arm and a leg.
