Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary health care that emphasizes on the prevention and the self-healing process using natural therapies. This happens by blending modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It basically combines the wisdom of nature with the rigors of modern science.

Naturopathy or “nature cure” is more than just a system of health care. It is in fact educational, gentle, and has a profound effect on people’s lives. All for a better way of living as well as a more effective healing and recovery.

The basic philosophy of naturopathic medicine is to stimulate the inherent healing powers of the body. A key aim is to recognize and treat the underlying cause of disease.

NDs (naturopathic doctors) concentrate on whole patient wellness through health promotion and disease prevention, while addressing the underlying cause of the patient’s condition. Its vitalistic approach is based on the creation of balance by detoxifying the body from harmful compounds such as toxins to support a more balanced function of health.
Naturopathic medicine is the art of prevention and treatment of diseases. Therefore, it is to re-create balance and harmony within a person’s body and life since health is the state of balance. It connects the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of the body to find and address the root cause of disease using natural, safe and effective modalities.
These basic modalities include Botanical Medicine (herbs and spices), Energy Medicine such as Homeopathy and TCM (the Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture), Clinical Nutrition and Orthomolecular Medicine including food, diet and various nutritional supplements, Physical Medicine (body manipulations and massage, Chiropractic, Osteopathy techniques, etc.), Counselling and Hydrotherapy.

Treatment of Chronic Diseases

Naturopathic Medicine VS Conventional Medicine

When it comes to treatment of chronic and degenerative diseases, chemical drugs and other pharmaceutical products cannot do much since they are only designed to control and address the symptoms and not to cure. This is because they are made to affect only the physical parts of the body whereas the causes of chronic diseases are NOT within the physical body, but mostly a manifestation of faulty perceptions at the physical levels. The energy system governs the matter particle presentations and functions which, in this case, is the physical body. Therefore, approaching a chronic health abnormality or a disease for cure requires a more profound view, such as what it is in naturopathic medicine.
