Naturopathy and Self-Healing

7 years ago

Naturopathy is an alternative medicine system that believes in the healing power of nature. According to the naturopathy philosophy, our body has the capacity to heal itself of any disease if it is aided by the right natural elements. Naturopaths focus on educating people to make appropriate lifestyle changes to increase their body’s capacity to heal.

A Typical ND Visit
Similar to a visit with an MD, a visit to a naturopathic doctor begins and moves very similarly. A treatment typically begins with the ND (naturopathic doctor) taking down your physiological and psychological history as well as details about your lifestyle and diet. You may also be asked to undergo certain tests so the ND can examine your digestive process and figure out if you suffer from any nutritional deficiencies. The final diagnosis is made after taking into consideration your current spiritual, emotional as well as physical health.
