Naturopathy is the natural, holistic approach to health and wellness. Based on the very logical principle that nature holds the propensity to enable ailments to be cured naturally, it is fair to say that mankind survived on the fruits of natures offerings for thousands of years before General Practitioners and big pharma became our dominant form of remedy for common illnesses, aches and pains.
If you are curious to try a healthier and more natural alternative to prescriptions and tablets to treat a health issue and are considering an experienced naturopath Brisbane has plenty to offer.
Organic treatments are not new. They have been used for thousands of years right around the world and are known to focus upon the cause of a problem or condition, to promote and support the body’s own natural healing systems. The word naturopathy literally translates as natural treatment which, through trial and error over a long, long time, our predecessors discovered and used naturally occurring remedies to treat one another with medicinal cures.
Indeed, many of today’s pharmaceutical remedies are founded on the same herbal and naturally occurring remedies. A few examples of naturally occurring remedies include turmeric, which is a well-known anti-inflammatory and is used to treat diseases such as arthritis, as well as skin diseases and is also used for cancer prevention. Tea Tree oil which is in-factnative to Australia, is beneficial for ailments such as dandruff, acne and athlete’s foot, and Echinacea, a commonly occurring flower in many countries, can be used in a variety of forms – juice, tea, or extract – to shorten symptoms of the common cold, boost immunity and to treat bronchitis and upper respiratory infections. Then there’s ginger, liquorice root, olive leaves, oregano … the more you look the more examples you will find.
So how widely used are natural products in today’s healthcare industry? Well the truth is that they’re everywhere. Some major examples of such natural products being used as cornerstone products in the pharmaceutical industry include aspirin, one of the world’s wisest used analgesic medicines, whose origin is in the plants known as Salix and Populus, more commonly known as Willow and Poplar trees in the northern hemisphere. The antibiotic Penicillin is of course a well-known discovery which was found in a laboratory growing as fungus.Between them they provide huge relief to sufferers of pain and headaches on a global scale, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
A strong and positive benefit to using naturopathic solutions as part of nature’s own medicinal toolbox is the simple fact that it is non-invasive, only requiring all natural treatments to impact the body’s self-healing capabilities.
Naturopathy can be best explained as ‘nature treating nature’. Its practice can help a person to establish both health and wellness through empowerment tocare for their own vitality. People that embark upon this learning curve will also achieve a far greater awareness of their own health, and of potential imbalances that might affect them or make them feel unwell, to the point at which remedial measures can be implemented, often without having to visit a Doctor.
