What are naturopathic remedies and where can I buy them?

We hear a lot about naturopathic remedies but what are they really? They are natural remedies that enable the body’s own inbuilt healing ability. The healthy human body possesses the ability to prevent or heal most diseases and naturopathy simply gives this natural process a helping hand.

The medical profession uses drugs to cure diseases whereas naturopathic remedies focus on the cause of the disease and identifies in which way the body is out of balance. It is this imbalance that has likely to have caused the condition in the first place.

One thing you will notice on visiting a naturopath is the length of time they will take to asses your physical condition and general lifestyle. They will also ask many questions relating to your diet and exercise routine. If necessary they will conduct test to uncover any allergies that may be impacting your health. This gives them a complete picture of your general conditions and a good starting point from which to begin.

Can naturopathic remedies cure everything?

What types of diseases and conditions can helped using naturopathic remedies? Any organic or even psychological condition that can be treated by a medical doctor can be healed and/or prevented by a naturopath. This list includes viral and bacterial illnesses, like the flu and stomach bugs, to more complex conditions such as hypertension (high blood pressure) allergies, irritable bowel syndrome and depression. Naturopathic remedies can’t heal mechanical conditions like a broken bone as these require medical intervention.

Once you realize that the body does have the ability to heal itself, you’ll need to learn how to give it the proper environment in which to do so. This is why the basis of all good naturopathic remedies is based on good nutrition. Naturopathic healing requires a healthy body and immune system and diet is the most important road towards achieving this.

So what should we eat to give our bodies the ability to heal naturally? Nowhere in the medical world is there more controversy than in that small word “diet”! Even natural doctors can’t agree exactly what foods we should and shouldn’t eat. Some tell us that complex carbohydrates are healthy, others tell us that all grains are bad even if they’re whole-grains. No wonder the average person is confused!

The wisdom I have distilled out of all this confusion is to keep your diet as natural as possible. This means avoiding anything processed that comes out of a can or box such as breakfast cereals, even if they have been “fortified” with vitamins. Obviously you can’t avoid processed goods entirely, just don’t make them the mainstay of your diet.

Sugar is probably one of the unhealthiest “natural” foods on this planet and can lead to a whole array of diseases. Sugar can also be extremely addictive so you may have to wean off it gradually. Aim for fresh and whole foods whenever possible and supplements such as Omega 3 will also do wonders for your health.

Eating a healthy natural diet will give you a great foundation and will help any type of natural treatments, whether they be acupuncture, reiki, hypnotherapy or any of the wonderful healing modalities available, to work as they are supposed to. Above all these remedies are based on the specific needs and wishes of each individual. That means  naturopathic remedies can often produce a much more beneficial and lasting healing result than the more conventional type of medicine.
