DESPERATE FOR CHANGE
Migraines once a week, hot flashes, night sweats, rashes, lack of energy and serious weight gain were just a few of the major symptoms that Samantha had when she came to visit for the first time. She was using progesterone and was taking depression and thyroid medication. She also had medication for the migraines to use when they were really bad. When she came to see me she was at the end of her rope and was miserable. Her nervous system was was a disaster and she was ready to try anything. Within the first two months she started to see marked improvement. In 5 months, her headaches were reduced by 95%, the hot flashes and night sweats were gone, her energy was way up and she had lost about 17 pounds. The best part was that by her own choice she decided to come off her medication as well, and has not needed it in over 2 months.
This is a very familiar scenario for many that is seen today. After a lifetime of nutritional deficiency, her body was finally giving the nutrients that it needed to be able to function correctly, so that she could properly rebuild and repair her body. Her nervous system completely balanced and was running optimally. Her diet changed and now she now eats food that contribute to constant healing and are a part of a healthy lifestyle. If you eat the right things, you will never have to “diet” ever again. I fully believe this and it is why I dont believe in dieting.
This site is about healing and all things that lead to a truly healthy lifestyle. My own health journey is a redemptive story, one that changed the course of my life forever. One of the most powerful tools that is used to help identify the body nutritional needs, helps to identify root causes of problems in the body and helps to rebuild and repair the body is done by using Nutrition Response Testing (NRT). One of the five stressors usually lies at the base of most health problems and NRT finds out what those are. You can also learn about the true role of toxicity and deficiency and how they are a part of all disease. For general information about Nutrition Response Testing, most questions people have can be answer on our FAQ’s page. Lastly, you can read about my journey of healing on a Nutrition Response Testing protocol.
Dr. Benedict Lust, the Father of Modern Naturopathic Medicine summarized it well in 1918 when he said, “”The natural system for healing disease is based on a return to nature in regulating the diet, breathing, exercising, bathing and the employment of various forces to eliminate the poisonous products in the system, and so raise the vitality of the patient to a proper standard of health.”
Any type of therapy or treatment that uses 100% natural means could technically fall under the umbrella of Natuopathy. Many of these healing modalities are well known by some people. These various modalities include such things as nutrition, homeopathy, detoxification modalities, orthomolecular medicine, diet, applied kinesiology, bach flower remedies, reflexology, light touch treatment and many others. Chinese medicine is also considered to be naturopathic because it is a system of medicine that uses natural modalities to heal the body.
People have the power to heal on their own and what I find to be true is that we all just need a little guidance. Healing for many is not magical, mysterious or complicated to understand. Six core principles exist that set a foundation for what we believe in.
1. We believe in the healing power of nature. The body can heal and restore itself if it has the right materials to do so.
2. Do no harm. Working with the body and not against it, does the least amount of harm. Natural modalities are best employed to work with the body.
3. Identify and heal the root cause. Roots causes can be physical, emotional, mental or environmental. A holisitic approach is used to identity and work on the actual cause of the problem (s).
4. We are WHOLE people. We deal with the whole person and not just segmented part of people. “Anything can cause anything” and it is important to recognize and work with the whole body to find a path to healing. This includes recognizes problems not only with the body, but also with the soul and spirit.
5. Doctor as a Teacher. The word doctor actually means teacher. Education is the most important part of what a naturopath does. The path to health should be plainly know to everyone.
6. Prevention is the key. Prevention disease is far easy than dealing with disease when it is full blown and chronic. Most disease takes years to accumulate. Even a routine trip to a naturopath and learning about healthy choices and lifestyle can have a massive impact in preventing disease.
Chinese Medicine – One of the most complete and oldest systems of medicine in the world.
Chinese medicine is one of the most fascinating and also misunderstood systems of medicine. Many people know a little about acupuncture, but Chinese medicine is so much more! It is actually very complete dealing with every facet of life and health, and very simply classifies life as balance between Yin and Yang. Acupunture just happens to be one of the things that can have a massive impact on immediate and long term health challenges. These results have been scientifically verified in countless numbers of studies and scientists also have used devices to measure energy in the body and at each on of the point in the body, there are definite changes of energy. This energy Chi (Qi), like other forms of energy, can be strengthened, changed and manipulated. Herbal medicine has been used for millenia to heal and are huge part of the ancient healing tradition. Other modalities are used as well such as moxibustion, cupping, tuina (massage), food therapy and qi gong. Many people are afraid of the unknown and due to this, they prevent themselves from trying new things. This system has been used for 5000 years and would have been abandonded a long time ago if it didnt work. Currently, I am studing to be an Acupunture Physican at the Florida College of Integrative Medicine.
