How to heal without the potential side effects of pharmaceutical drugs

Naturopathy has been helping people to heal without drugs for more than a century; but the gentle, natural healing principles behind naturopathy are as old as nature itself. Indeed, Hippocrates formally identified the foundation principles of Naturopathy in around 400 BC.

The German doctor, Dr Benedict Lust, combined many traditional and newer practices to become the father of modern Naturopathy in the mid 18th century. Today, Naturopathy has established itself as a method of choice for whole body healing using a range of complementary techniques or 'modalities'.

Many medical doctors are now incorporating naturopathic techniques into their allopathic practices, because it works.

What does a Naturopath do?

A Naturopath uses a wide variety of well-known and trusted tools including:
• Herbal remedies
• Massage techniques including Reflexology
• Aromatherapy
• Nutritional therapy
• Exercise
• Herbal remedies
• Natural supplements

After completing a detailed history and patient examination, the naturopath will prescribe a course of gentle treatments that will heal the whole body. The naturopath does not just treat symptoms but seeks to find the root cause of your illness by exploring the mind, body and spirit, and addressing any imbalances in those areas.

The naturopath will use gentle techniques that encourage your body’s own healing mechanisms and will guide the patient to aid this process.

An important aspect of this is educating the patient to make better lifestyle and dietary choices. Because naturopathy takes this gentle, non-invasive holistic approach it can work really effectively in its own right or as a complement to allopathic medicine.

What conditions does a Naturopath treat?

Naturopathy has been used in the effective treatment of a range of conditions including:
• Sinusitis
• Asthma
• Eczema
• Psoriasis
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome
• Insomnia
• Pre-menstrual Syndrome
• Menopause complications
• Kidney Stones
• Hypothyroidism

Because Naturopathy treats the whole body in a gentle and natural way the patient can find relief for many other conditions as well. Naturopathy aims for complete holistic health.

The Australian Government Department of Health says this about naturopathy:

“As a highly effective, safe and viable modality, Naturopathy can be readily utilised to complement the existing health system, thereby reducing the load in many areas. It is especially worth noting that the science of Naturopathy is particularly effective in the treatment and relief of many chronic conditions and is a highly cost effective way of reducing the substantial load which these conditions place upon the nation.”
