Summary Of Naturopathic Medicine (Naturopathy)

Introduction

Naturopathic medicine is a unique system of healing first developed in the late 1890’s in Europe which emphasizes the natural self-healing processes of the human body. The main principles include using healing approaches which derive from natural means, encouraging self-care and responsibility for health, using therapies that promote the body’s incredible ability to heal itself. The treatments take into account the entire person. A naturopathic doctor or more commonly known as a holistic doctor typically combines several kinds of holistic healing therapies, including nutrition and diet (one of my specialties), lifestyle changes, herbal medicines, supplementation, vitamins, minerals, hydrotherapy, mental health counseling, biofeedback and hypnosis all geared to prevent illness, treat disease, and promote wellness.

History of Naturopathy

Naturopathy derived as a commonly practiced holistic health system in the early 1900’s, and its origins are mainly from European herbal and water therapy traditions. It grew in popularity in the US until the 1940’s, then dropped in popularity during the ‘50’s and ‘60’s, and has since experienced a reemergence. It is estimated that up to 70% of Americans have tried some form of alternative, holistic, or complimentary medicine and annual visits to these types of practitioners exceeds visits to conventional medical doctors in the United States.

Philosophy of Naturopathy

Principles that are central to the practice of naturopathic/holistic medicine include:

  1. The healing power of nature. Naturopaths recognize the body’s inherent ability to heal itself, and the naturopathic physician’s role in promoting and enhancing self-healing.
  2. First do no harm. Naturopaths realize the importance of minimizing harmful side effects of treatment. Whenever possible choose gentler, less potent, therapeutic options.
  3. Find the root cause. This is by far one of the most important principles in naturopathy. Realizing that suppressing symptoms alone may get in the way of discovering the root cause of a disease.
  4. Doctor as teacher. The role of the naturopathic holistic doctor is to educate and encourage individuals to take responsibility for their own health and wellness.
  5. Treat the whole person. Naturopathic holistic doctors strive to take into account all aspects of their clients’ health including emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects.
  6. Prevention. Naturopathic holistic doctors realize the importance of disease prevention through the use of effective techniques such as diet, lifestyle changes, and herbs and supplements.
