Basic Principles Followed by a Naturopathic Doctor
The basic theme behind naturopathic medicine relies on the curative power of nature. According to this theory, natural products have the ability to restore the body’s inherent balance. Naturopathic techniques benefit our bodies without any side effects.
In addition, naturopathic doctors pay attention to the prevention or reappearance of symptoms. They suggest necessary alterations in the habits and lifestyle of a patient. This includes exercise, exposure to sunlight, meditation and adherence to specific dietary charts.
How a Naturopathic Doctor Treats
Usually, naturopathic doctors utilize different techniques to cure a disorder or illness. While treating a disease or disorder, NDs pay attention to utilize the natural healing ability of a body. Some of the most effective methods used by our naturopathic doctors are as under.
Removing the Cause of Disturbance
Health is our body’s natural state and a disturbance in this state leads to disease. So if someone wants to regain its state of health, it is essential to remove the obstacles or disturbance, causing a disease.
The most common of these obstacles include digestive disturbances, poor diet, stress, and disharmony. Naturopathic doctors focus on identifying these obstacles and removing them to help patient revive his/her state of health. This also helps to avail maximum benefit out of other therapeutic treatment.
Stimulation of Natural-Healing System
The therapies used by our naturopathic doctors help to trigger the self-healing abilities of a body. The modalities utilized during such treatment involve botanical medicines, clinical nutrition, homeopathy, constitutional hydrotherapy, and acupuncture.
Strengthening of the Self-healing Mechanism
Once the NDs successfully trigger the natural-healing mechanism, the next step is to strengthen it. This allows minimizing the healing duration and improving the performance of a body. To achieve this goal, practitioners introduce dietary modifications, lifestyle interventions, botanical medicine, and homeopathy.
Focus on Structural Integrity
Apart from relying on different techniques, physical modalities also play their role while relieving the sensation of discomfort. This includes massage therapy, spinal manipulation, and craniofacial therapy. These therapies help to maintain and improve the musculature and skeletal integrity of a body.
Use of Natural Substances
Naturopathic doctors possess the skills and knowledge to utilize natural substances to treat illness. Since the primary objective of medicine is to restore the health of a patient, there is no harm in utilizing the natural substance for this purpose. Therefore, to address a specific pathology, NDs use natural substances that are safe, effective and don’t add toxic elements into an already disturbed body.
