Why one requires a Naturopathy Treatment?
Several systems of treatment like Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homoeopathy, Unani and Nature Cure etc. are prevalent in our country and almost all of these are having wide acceptance by public. However, it remains a fact that each system has its own advantages or limitations. No system can claim to be complete in all respects. Therefore the rational approach would be to have an integrated approach in respect of treatment and different system should become complementary to each other in the best interest of suffering masses.
Creation of water tight compartments would not only prove to be disservice in respect of several patients and diseases, but also be ant progressive approach in respect of development of the particular system itself.
By identifying and removing obstacles to cure, the body is able to heal and move toward optimal health. The goal of naturopathic practice is to treat underlying disorders and to restore normal body function by enhancing the body’s own healing abilities.
A naturopath uses non-invasive and natural therapies to tap into the body’s self-healing abilities. Physical symptoms are examined, as well as the influence of lifestyle factors and emotions on the person’s whole health. Nutrition from whole foods and super foods can be used to strengthen and nourish the body.
Naturopathy treats all the aspects like physical, mental, social and spiritual at the same time. Naturopathy treats the body as a whole. According to Naturopathy, “Food is only the Medicine”, no external medications are used. Performing prayer according to one’s spiritual faith is an important part of treatment.
Naturopathy aims to educate the person to look after their own health and the health of their family, minimizing symptoms of any illness, supporting the body’s capacity to heal, and balancing the body so that illness is less likely to occur in the future.
A range of therapies are used to support the person. Therapies may include nutritional medicine, diet advice, herbal medicine, homeopathy, lifestyle advice, and tactile therapies, such as massage, acupressure or Bowen technique.
A professional naturopath is someone who has completed, at a minimum, an Advanced Diploma in either Naturopathy or Health Science, is registered with a professional body and is insured appropriately. Usually, a naturopath will have completed a Bachelor-level qualification.
The most vital difference between Naturopathy and with other systems is that Naturopathy’s practices are based on holistic dimension (totality of factors responsible for the diseases) while other systems follow specific approach.
According to Naturopathy, the cause of all diseases are one-morbid matter, elimination of morbid matter from the body is the treatment. The primary factor of disease is not the bacteria or viruses, but the morbid matter. Bacteria and viruses are the secondary factor. Naturopathy treats body as a whole instead of giving treatment to each organ separately. Acute diseases are self healing effort of the body. Hence they are our friends not the enemy. Chronic diseases are the outcome of wrong treatment and suppression of acute diseases.
Naturopathy treats physical, mental, social and spiritual, all the four aspects at the same time. Nature is the greatest healer. Body has a capacity to prevent itself from disease and regain health if unhealthy. The Naturopath helps in nature’s effort to overcome disease by applying correct natural modalities and controlling the natural forces to work within the safe limits. All diseases, their causes and treatment are one.
