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.

Naturopathic physicians are trained to treat the cause, not the symptom, of an illness. When it comes to cancer, how often do doctors stop and try to treat the cause? That, of course, would assume that we know what causes cancer.

I just read a recent study that said that skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. And to further add to that statistic, woman under the age of 39 have a greater increase in melanoma. Yikes!

Despite popular belief, canola oil is not good for us. It’s hard to understand this because in most health food stores canola oil is a staple ingredient. Unfortunately, almost all types of canola oil are considered a GMO or genetically modified organism...

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. Word of caution though, taking on allergen removal yourself means you could be unnecessarily removing a favorite food while missing the real culprit!

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...

FDA rules dictate that every product must be labeled as either a FOOD or a SUPPLEMENT but NOT both. The FDA position is that it is impossible for any one product to both heal and feed you.

Every Naturopathic physician knows this is simply not true. We have been using carefully selected foods as effective medicines for over 100 years. There is no quackery here...

It starts with the alarm clock, continues in traffic, stays with you all day at work or school, and—for most people—you end up carrying it home. Stress is a large (and potentially harmful) part of our everyday lives...

Being optimally healthy is a result of tens of thousands of deliberate and intentional decisions made throughout a lifetime. While genes also play a significant role, it is lifestyle and attitude that determine our level of health more than our genes. All of us have some 'bad' genes that puts at risk for certain diseases...
