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.

What is termed today alternative and complementary medicine has had a long and distinguished track record in the treatment of asthma. That the natural therapeutic regimens utilized are not recognized by conventional medicine is not a function of their inefficiency or efficacy, but rather its dependence upon diagnostic procedures, surgery and pharmaceuticals. Many of the pharmaceutical agents of today are derivatives of plant medicines still utilized by many medical practitioners. In fact, in many countries, herbal and homeopathic medicines are the medicines of choice for the treatment of asthma.

Bronchitis refers to an infection or irritation of the bronchi—the passageway from the windpipe (trachea) to the lungs. This illness is much more common in the winter, as it usually follows an upper respiratory infection such as a cold. Chest, the official journal of the American College of Chest Physicians, reported in 2006 that “acute bronchitis is one of the most common diagnoses made by primary care clinicians and emergency department physicians.”...

Early asthma onset in children has been shown to have negative influences on behavioral adjustment in part related to the asthma's severity. The more severe the illness, the greater the adverse effects. Children who have an earlier onset of asthma (less than 3 years of age) show significantly more behavior problems at age 4 than children who developed asthma later (Mrazek DA et al). When compared to asthma free children of comparable ages, incidences of depression, wakefulness and fearfulness are greater.

It is estimated that asthma affects between 5% to 6% of the US population, which translates to between 12 to 15 million cases per year. This reflects an increase from 34.7in 1982 to 49.4 cases per 1000 in 1992 (Merc). Asthma most commonly occurs in childrenunder age 10 years and in males more often than females. By approximately age 30, the ratio of males to females (2:1) equalizes (Pizzorno & Murray). In the U.S. children under the age of 18 affected by asthma in 1982 was roughly 4%, but by 1994, this rate had increased to almost 7%, or approximately five million people under the age of 18. During this period the age-adjusted prevalence rate of asthma for people younger than 18 years old increased by 72%, thus making asthma the most prevalent chronic disease among children, and the number one reason for school absences (US Health & Human Svsc).

If you go to see a doctor to receive Classical Homeopathic treatment, they will ask you extensive details about any and all symptoms you present with. Why? Because a Classical Homeopathic remedy is found by matching up the exact symptoms of the patient with those symptoms that are induced by a particular substance...


Editor's Note from Rebecca Snowden: Many people exhibit much confusion between Naturopathy and Homeopathy. Homeopathy is simply one of the modalities, tools or systems that can be used within the practice of Naturopathic Medicine.
