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.

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.

Editor's Note from Julie Lachman: Dr. Price’s journey around the world reveals many different diets that benefit the human population. He recorded his findings in an amazing book: Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. First published in 1939, it’s as relevant as it was back then. The pictures are priceless, and are worth buying the book. His book shapes my nutritional recommendations to this day. The second half of the video relates to dietary studies on cats fed raw food (their natural diet) versus cooked food. It’s a very famous study. What’s the connection with osteoporosis, skeletal deformities, infertility, cavities, and diet?

Sarah is a 38 year old woman who would start out leaving for work in the morning wearing one size of clothing and would be wearing two sizes bigger by the end of her workday. She would keep extenders in her desk so that her clothes would still fit by the end of the day. She went to see 11 different specialists trying to identify the cause. When she came in to finally see me, I recommended that she begin an elimination diet...


Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: This is a great article explaining some ways our immune systems can react to different types of foods and symptoms that can occur as a result.

When I heard about Newark Mayor Cory Booker’s one week Food Stamp Challenge on the Sunday Morning Show, I was intrigued.  As a bone health and nutrition coach, I wondered whether you could not just survive but eat well on food stamps...

The medicinal qualities of oregano fall into two major categories: bronchial dilation and anti-microbial activity. Many volatile oils will help to clear congested sinuses or even a chest cold. You could drop a few drops of the concentrated oil into the bottom of a large bowl, put in a few cups of hot water and situate yourself over the bowl, under a large towel, so you can breathe in the “fumes” of the oil coming up in the steam...
