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.

1. Activated charcoal:  You definitely want to keep some handy in case you happen to ingest something that is harmful such as poison. You also want to keep it handy in case you eat something and it just doesn't agree with you. Sometimes we ingest chemicals in processed foods such as propylene glycol...


Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: A good friend and colleague of mine, Dr. Fong has some simple products you'll want to keep on hand for a variety of common concerns, including first aid.

Food and water molecules have a positive and negative end similar to the north and south polarity of a magnet.  The magnetron in a microwave oven generates an alternating current of more than a billion cycles per second. As this extremely rapid alternating microwave frequency bombards food, it causes the molecules of the food to reverse polarity at the same billions of times per second. This agitation creates molecular “friction”, producing heat – but also tearing apart and deforming the food molecules...


Editor's Note: To just pop something into the microwave seems so easy, but after reading this, it might make you queasy!



Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: This is another of Tom Ballard's four videos. Most people don't realize it, but we're actually detoxifying all the time. Every exhale is detoxifying. When someone dies of suffocation, it's actually a death from too much carbon dioxide, not a deficiency of oxygen. Getting rid of toxins is how we stay alive--this includes toxins like heavy metals and pesticides, but also toxins that we make ourselves, like carbon dioxide, and extra cholesterol and hormones. So take a deep breath in, and out! Enjoy this cute video.

“Look Mom! No Hands!” After a pretty stressful couple of years, I have finally remembered this sort of a mantra that I used while in naturopathic medical school. It arose one year in the middle of another stressful period when I shared with a friend that I felt like I was on the “Roller Coaster of Life”. You know the period of anticipation at the beginning of a roller coaster, as you click, click, click up that first hill? Then the ride begins!


Editor's Note: While decreasing stress is optimal, still stresses will remain. Dr. Jensen gives us words of wisdom to help us handle all that life throws at us while limiting the undesired repercussions.

Treating the cause, we know, is finding the cure to our health issues. Food intolerance is one of the main CAUSES for health problems of any kind. We may sneeze or itch after eating certain foods, we may have an increase in phlegm in our throat or stomach pain, gas, bloating. Many of us have reactions to foods and think that simply removing the food(s) from our diet is the answer. The cure, however, can be found by asking WHY we have these food reactions...

I wanted to clarify some terms that might be used by practitioners of different stripes. My goal in writing this is to help everybody explore and understand the type of care they might receive, and encourage people to think about the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to healthcare...

While naturopathic doctors individualize their dietary regimes for each patient, this short term diet has proven amazing for many people. Often, due to lifestyle choices, inflammation can develop and show up in many different forms in our bodies, often times while we are unaware. Our internal organs can become inflamed in such cases as autoimmune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, heart disease and cancers, and many others. Most of us could really benefit from quelling the firestorm inside with this anti-inflammatory plan...

A 37 year old female came into my office and sat down across from me, a tissue clenched in her hands. She began to describe her depression, which began several years ago with the passing of her father. She had a hard time going to work in the mornings, and stated that she had no motivation to go out and spend time with her friends...


Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: Dr. Cain is an amazing physician, so I'm not surprised that she gets amazing results with her patients. Homeopathic medicines are FDA-approved medicines with no side effects but for chronic conditions, should be prescribed by a homeopath or naturopath. You'll enjoy this lighthearted case study.

The Pap test, also called Pap smear, is used to find cervical abnormalities long before they become actually a threat to your well-being. The Cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens into the vagina (birth canal). A major cause of cervical cancer appears to be a virus: Human (HPV), which is transmitted sexually. Cervical cancer starts as changes called “dysplasia”, a precancerous phase, are detectable on the Pap smear...


Editor's Note: Naturopathic medicine offers some excellent treatment options for the abnormal pap. Find out here, what an abnormal pap is and what Naturopathic medicine can do for you should you get one.

Whether you’re looking forward to a pick-up game or are gearing up for a whole new season, start spring training early. Instead of just rushing in, gently prepare your cold, tight, muscles by stretching and by shorter periods of activity one week prior...

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.
