Introduction to Naturopathy
The natural way of healing Naturopathy shows the way.... God has not given us any disease for which he has not provided a remedy, only we must have the vision to look at it! Naturopathic Medicine, or Naturopathy, is a system of medicine that uses natural substances to treat the patient and recognition that the patient`s mental, emotional, and physical states must all be treated for a lasting effect.
Naturopathy is based on the belief that the body is self-healing. The body will repair itself and recover from illness spontaneously if it is in a healthy environment. Naturopaths have many remedies and recommendations for creating a healthy environment so the body can spontaneously heal itself.
Though the term Naturopathy was coined in 1895, this type of medicine had been practiced for hundreds, if not thousands of years prior. The fundamental difference of Nature Care with other systems is that theory and practice are based on holistic view point whereas the latter`s approach is specific. Nature Care does not believe in the specific cause of disease and its specific treatment but takes into account the totality of factors responsible for disease such as one`s unnatural habits in living, thinking, working, sleeping, relaxing, sexual indulging etc.
It also considers the environmental factors involved which on the whole disturb the normal functioning of the body and lead it to a morbid, weak and toxic state. The foundation of Naturopathic medicine is the vitalistic philosophy of the healing power of nature. This means that within every human organism there is a healing energy, which includes our immune system in the fuller sense of both the physical and the psyche, which is responsible for our wellness and our ability to heal and maintain health.
