Naturopathic Medicine

When you get sick you most likely will go to the doctor. The doctor usually an MD will examine you ask about the symptoms then give you at least one and sometimes several prescriptions to relieve the symptoms and supposedly cure the disease that the doctor has diagnosed you as having.

The drugs may have bad side effects; many drugs thought to be safe by the allopathic community have been known to be fatal even when used as described and as prescribed by a physician.

Naturopathic medicine can encompass a very broad range of healing modalities but all of these modalities will meet the 6 criteria that are the basis for Naturopathy.

First and foremost- the prime directive you might call it is Primum Non Nocere which is Latin for “First Do No Harm” The ND will always choose the therapies that limit the possibility of harmful side effects. Any treatment that suppresses the symptoms is avoided as this can interfere with the healing process. Example if you have a cough it is because your body is attempting to rid itself of poisons. If you suppress the cough with cough medicine the poison stays in the body and you go from a cold to pneumonia much quicker. A well known physician was on TV not long ago and had put a question to the audience about the benefits of cough medicine in regards to healing a cold. His conclusion was that there …
