What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is a universal method that uses natural therapies for self-healing. This method of treatment is used since 1890 but during the last few years, its popularity has increased. According to naturopathic medicine, "nature is the most effective and reliable healer". The diagnoses involve identifying the cause of the disease and treating it using natural therapy.
Naturopathy is working on the objective of educating a person to take care of his/her health and family and reducing the signs of any ailment. Also, to ensure that a specific disease is not faced in the future. The roots of naturopathic medicine are based on the impact of a healthy diet, sunlight, and exercise. Multiple therapies support naturopathy.
Principles of Naturopathic Medicine
First, do no harm
A naturopathic treatment plan uses the most natural, gentle, and effective therapies.
Identify and treat the cause
It aims to look beyond the symptoms and treat the root cause.
The Healing Power of Nature
The human body has the self-healing ability. A naturopathic Doctor helps to speed up or maximize the healing process.
Doctor as a Teacher
A Naturopathic Doctor will not only treat but will also educate the patients to achieve and maintain health.
Treat the Whole Person
Naturopathic Medicine practices a holistic approach wherein it will look at the whole person including the physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions.
Naturopathy focuses on attaining overall health, wellness, and prevention of diseases. Disease prevention is much cheaper and easier than to treat the disease.
