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.

Naturopathy

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."

The skin is our largest organ. It weighs more than any other organ and covers a total of 20 square feet...

Calories aren’t the culprit. Cortisol is the culprit. The fight or flight syndrome that is the basis of our physiological response to stress causes the adrenal glands to produce this hormone, whose job it is to modulate the effects of insulin on blood sugar. Ongoing stress can tax the system beyond its normal abilities... especially when coupled with poor dietary choices...

To help keep busy doctors informed, digests (whether paper or online) re-publish or summarize what they deem “news-worthy” pieces from the original literature. Of course, for every clinical trial these digests highlight, they are probably ignoring 100 or so interesting trials...
