The whole aim of naturopathy is to heal the person with natural therapies, without resorting to any prescription medicines. Naturopathy has been practiced for thousands of years all around the world.
Naturopathy uses natural remedies to heal the body from all types of diseases & ailments by means of Herbs, Acupuncture, Massages, Yoga & other types of exercises. Naturopathic medicine aims to treat the whole being that includes the body, mind & the spirit. It aims to get rid of the root cause of the disease, not just the superficial symptoms.
A naturopath begins treatment by removing all the toxins from the body. It may includes:
- Fasting – by removing Carbs and fats from the diet. Eating only fruits to cleanse the body.
- Juice detoxes – by prescribing patients Juice only diets.
- Enemas and Colon-Hydrotherapy – they are done by injecting detoxing liquids such as neem water or plain warm water into the large intestine via inserting a tube into the rectum to cleanse the colon.
After the body has been cleansed a Naturopath Doctor would put the patient on a soft-diet such as steamed vegetables or Soups for a few days so the body can slowly adjust to the food. All this would be done while the patient simultaneously receives other therapies such as Massages, Herbal packs, Mud packs, Yoga and Acupuncture targeting the underlying disease.
