Age old scriptures are a treasure trove of mystery, especially Indian texts such as the Vedas. They contain information about some interesting facts about nature, medicines obtained from trees, plants, roots, barks, herbs, and natural ways of healing. Natural healing was a way of life back, and modern medical sciences came in much later! Modern medical science brought with itself various new techniques of operating patients as well as drugs for relieving pain. But these chemical drugs are known to weaken our immune system. That’s why a lot of people are resorting to natural ways of healing, just like olden times.
The technique of healing the body through natural ways and means is known as naturopathy, and the doctors who practice it are known as naturopaths. Naturopaths believe in identifying the root cause of the problem, rather than simply trying to treat the present symptoms. Behind every disease, illness, or medical ailment, there is an underlying root cause. This root cause triggers the disease each time. So naturally it makes more sense to eliminate the root, rather than treating the superficial symptoms every time. Until and unless the root is eradicated, the problem will surface time and again.
Naturopathy just does this; it tries to identify the root and eliminates it through natural healing methods that are holistic and powerful. These methods include lifestyle counseling, altering diet, recommending traditional Indian Ayurvedic and Chinese medicines, acupressure and acupuncture. Let’s see the different ways in which naturopathic medicines can heal you –
- Identifying the body’s natural healing capability: Every human body has an innate capability to heal on its own. There are a few obstacles which prevent this. A Naturopath Newtown can help you to overcome these barriers so that the body’s original nature helps itself to recover from the illness.
- Treating the cause, not the symptoms: Every disease arises from a root cause. Sadly, most medical practitioners just suppress the symptoms rather than eradicating the root cause. A Naturopath Parramatta will help you to overcome the disease by treating the root cause through a combination of holistic healing methods.
- Paying attention to holistic healing: When you are ill, your physical, mental, and emotional sense gets imbalanced. Every general physician will try to treat just the physical problem, thereby disregarding the other aspects of healing. However, every time you neglect the mental and emotional sense, it gets weaker. This makes you more prone to future illnesses. Naturopaths Sydney treat all these three aspects.
- Preventive measures: Naturopaths believe in preventing rather than curing. They will sit with you for a long duration and ask you a lot of questions. They seek many answers because they want to find out what the root cause of your illness is, and whether you are susceptible to other types of diseases too. In case you are, they will suggest you ways to overcome the same.
You will be pleased to know that at times naturopathy has shown its effect even when allopathic medicines have failed.
