How Herbs Play a Part in Naturopathy

Aug 17, 2007
An increased number of consumers are taking their health into their own hands and using naturopathic medicine to treat what ails them. Taking a natural approach, using natural herbs and other non-synthetic treatments, gives the consumer a whole body healing approach, rather than the dominant single-symptom treatments doctors seem so fond of in modern medicine.

Naturopathy allows you to treat your entire body to put it back on track to good health. It combines the mind, body, and spirit in all treatments so that your internal and mental state gets back in balance and has a stronger ability to stave off infection and heal faster than usual.

For thousands of years, our ancestors have practiced naturopathic medicine because it's all they knew and had on hand before the culmination of man-made prescriptions took root.

Herbs today are being used in conjunction with spiritual rituals to treat hundreds of human illnesses. Your body was designed to be able to heal itself, as is evident with the natural antibodies you produce when infection strikes. But sometimes you need a boost, and herbs deliver what the body sometimes can't.

Naturopathy uses herbs to help the body heal faster by boosting its natural abilities, not introducing foreign substances into the body that you eventually build up an immunity to over time.

You'll notice that if you follow the teachings of naturopathic medicine, you won't be sent on your way with an herb or two in your pocket to take care of the problem. Instead, you'll be encouraged to live a better life spiritually and mentally, as well as take care of your physical health in all areas, such as diet and exercise.

Herbs can only do so much healing. If a consumer isn't willing to take the necessary steps to eliminate bad things from their diet, or implement a positive outlook on life, then the disabilities ailing them will continue to return time and time again.

Those who use herbs to continue on a path to naturopathic treatments are people who believe in non-toxic therapies. Synthetic prescriptions are not natural to the body, and can sometimes produce disabling side effects on their own.

As the medicinal form of naturopathy continues to develop even further over the coming years, you'll see an increase in the number of other treatment paths who use a whole body approach and believe in treating the person, not the prognosis.
