What Is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy traces its roots to Greek, European, and Chinese medical traditions. It shares the beliefs from these ancient cultures of an underlying life force - a force that, when nourished, allows the body to heal itself. Simply put, it is a system best described as "Following the Path of Nature". It uses traditional healing modalities found in nature from around the world.
Since its inception, nutrition has been the mainstay of naturopathic methods, often employing herbs as medicines. True naturopathy is a form of healing that looks at health and disease from a very different perspective and employs the basic elements of earth, water, air, sunshine, and nutrients in their most natural states to achieve its goals. The underlying principle of naturopathy, "to heal in harmony with the natural functions of the body without harm," highlights its appeal. This harmony is exactly what sets it apart from conventional Western/Allopathic methods - it is also what distinguishes it from what it is often confused with, the better-known "homeopathic" medicine. While both systems share a deep commitment in treating the cause of the disease, homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the concept that "like cures like," stimulating the body into a healing responsive mode.
The Principles of Naturopathy
Michael's Naturopathic Programs incorporate the basic tenets of naturopathy. This is reflected in their consistent effectiveness over time. The Principles of Naturopathy are seemingly simple in design, and yet they represent concepts that have significant implications for health. Together these four concepts forge a synergistic alliance. The concept of synergy was first expounded upon by Buckminster Fuller, inventor of the geodesic dome, who defined synergy as "the behavior of whole systems unpredicted by the behavior of their parts". He considered synergy to be a basic principle of all interactive systems. This applies directly to Naturopathy.
The chart represents the four core concepts of Naturopathy. Utilizing these concepts as the foundation for treatment helps to bring the body back into a homeostasis, a state of balance. By providing needed nutrients, the body can utilize its capacity to address stressors that create pressure to pull the body out of balance. The innate wisdom of the body can restore health. Naturopathy acknowledges the powerful and often untapped ability of the body to heal itself.
Do No Harm
The first of these principles or tenets is to first do no harm. By providing nutrients, not drugs or other treatments, the body has what it needs to re-establish the health of the individual without any 'cost'. The 'cost' in this case is a negative impact on the person from the treatment modality itself, i.e., side effects from pharmaceutical drugs.
Find the Cause
The second principle is to find the cause of the health concern. To accurately select the correct course of treatment the specific cause must be determined. If this is not done, the result may be merely treating symptoms. This can result in a delay in pursuing the most effective course of treatment.
Treat the Whole Person
Thirdly, treat the whole person. Treatments solely focused on symptom relief may not address all the factors as they relate to the core issues. Many components can impact an individual's health concerns, going beyond what appear to be the direct causes. These can include not only physical signs of disease but others including for example, emotional concerns. There may also be contributing factors that are centered in an area of the body that at first might seem unrelated to the issue at hand.
Utilize the Healing Power of Nature
The fourth principle is to honor the immense healing power of nature. This healing power exists in each person and is also found in the gifts provided by nature as the nutrients in our foods from a vast array of sources. Again, given the essential nutrients, our bodies can perform a virtually limitless range of healing functions.
