What Is The Basis of Naturopathic Medicine?

What Exactly Does Naturopathic Medicine Do?

Naturopathic medicine approaches health conditions by utilizing the body's inherent ability to heal and regain balance. Naturopathic physicians aid the healing process by incorporating a variety of alternative methods based on the patient's individual needs.   It's really that simple.

Diet, lifestyle, work, and personal history are generally the most signifant factors in identifying a treatment regimen to recommend.

Dr. David Cohen's history of success is attention-grabbing. Even medical specialists from out-of-town and as far away as Israel send patients to this extraordinarily knowledgeable naturopathic specialist. It appears that each person he's advised or treated, including two medical doctors who are among his numerous professional patients, voices unqualified praise and appreciation for the effectiveness of his guidance and top-notch information. Naturopathy is the fastest-growing segment of health, and with ample justification for the Health Zen of Longevity:     technology married to the most effective healing techniques of some fifty-five centuries consistently delivers better results than conventional medicine.   Consistently.   Even skeptics have to heed empirical success.

The foundation of naturopathic medicine is aptly described in the definition of health advocated by the World Health Organization (WHO):   "... a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of infinity."   In fact, WHO, in a report on traditional medicine, recommends the integration of naturopathic medicine into conventional health care systems.

Naturopathic medicine is not a single modality of healing, but an array of healing practices, including diet and clinical nutrition. If you have more than one or two "bad" days in any given year, if you suffer recurring illness or pain, it is not inconceivable that you might need a "doctor-ectomy," because there is one inarguable fact:

If your doctor KNEW better about healing you,
your doctor would DO better healing you. A wise individual would give more than a passing moment's consideration to this fact.
From a Health Zen of Longevity point of view, everything else is basically superficial chatter, empty of much value towards promoting YOUR greatest longevity.
How many times can it be said: Medical doctors are first-rate for ACUTE care, which means emergency care, because they are so well-trained for acute care.
Chronic care, however, is not at all the province of the allopathic doctor, as we see by their rates of remission, relapse, and death. Tally it up yourself!
NUMBERS DO NOT LIE, only humans do, manipulating numbers to their advantage. Let's defeat that defeatist approach to putative health care,
"putative" because the Health Zen of Longevity posits that "health care" is a world apart from what we universally agree is "health CURE."

Using naturopathic medicine to approach healing, including Bodyscan2010   homeopathy;  acupuncture; herbal medicine;  hydrotherapy;  therapeutic exercise;  spinal and soft-tissue manipulation;  physical therapies involving electric currents, ultrasound, and light therapy;  therapeutic counseling;  are all highly effective -- otherwise people and organizations would not spend tens of millions of dollars on them in annually growing numbers... and everything else is little more than chatter.

-- and all have ZERO side effects or danger to the body, as do surgery and prescribed drugs. Please remember that the one, and ONLY one reason why a doctor's signature is required for a pharmaceutical is because that medicine is either deadly or just plain dangerous.   There are no exceptions.

Principles of Naturopathic Medicine

Even if the actual phrases "naturopathy" and "naturopathic medicine" were not defined in writing until rather recently, naturopathic medicines are not now.

Although it is probably true that the terms naturopathy and naturopathic remedies were not employed until the late nineteenth century, its philosophical roots date back thousands of

Because patented medicines are so new to humanity, every remedy and approach was naturopathic. Everything was natural, by default. Patented potions and chemicals did not exist for the largest portion of humanity's existence, so every remedy, every medicine, was as natural as the water we were able to drink.

Springing from the healing wisdom of many cultures including Indian (Ayurveda), Chinese (Traditional Chinese Medicine), Native American, and Greek (Hippocratic), naturopathic medicine is a system of medicine based on six time-tested principles:

  • The healing power of nature: The body has considerable power to heal itself, and the role of the naturopathic physician is to facilitate this natural process with the aid of natural, non-toxic therapies.

  • Treat the causes rather than the effect: Naturopathic physicians seek the underlying cause of a disease rather than simply suppressing the symptoms.  They avoid suppression of the natural healing wisdom of the body, such as fever and inflammation.  Symptoms are viewed as expressions of the body's natural attempt to heal while the causes can spring from the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual levels.
  • First, do not harm: By employing safe and effective natural therapies, naturopathic physicians are committed to the principle of causing no harm to the patient.

  • Treat the whole person: The individual is viewed as a whole, composed of a complex interaction of physical, mental/emotional, spiritual, social, and other factors.  This multifunctional approach results in a therapeutic approach in which no disease is automatically seen as incurable.

  • The physician is a teacher: Naturopathic physicians are first and foremost teachers who educate, empower, and motivate the patient to assume more personal responsibility for his or her health by adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle, and diet.

  • Prevention is the best cure: Naturopathic physicians are preventative medicine specialists.  Prevention of disease is accomplished through education and a lifestyle that supports health.
How Does Naturopathic Medicine Work?

Observations Of The Health Zen of Longevity
Conditions Most Likely To Respond Best To Naturopathic Medicines

In the naturopathic system of medicine, disease is seen as a manifestation of the natural causes by which the body heals itself.  For example, fever and inflammation are viewed as the body's way of dealing with an imbalance that is undermining the healthy functioning of the body.  However, if the cause of the imbalance is not removed, the inflammatory responses will continue, either at a lower level of intensity or intermittently.  This can be the origin of chronic disease.  Healing a chronic disease requires the removal of the underlying cause.  This usually culminates in a return of an acute episode, called a "healing crises" or "reaction," a keynote of naturopathic medical theory.  Following this the condition improves.

Although naturopathic physicians emphasize therapeutic choices based on individual interest and experience, as well as the legal parameters of the state in which he or she practices, they maintain a consistent philosophy.  All have been trained in the basic tools of natural therapeutics, and most work with diet and nutrition while specializing in one or more other therapeutic methods.

Health Zen of Longevity - New Tools Of Naturopathic Medicine

With the advent of quantum reflex analysis, Bodyscan2010, a long-time treasure of as is Ondamed, and these tools, as do ZYTO and BaxAura and others, the guesswork is over. Naturopathic medicine, when used in combination with the technological advances on the forefront of naturopathy, yield significantly, indisputably greater accuracy. Greater accuracy consistently lends itself to greater efficiency in returning the body to its most natural state, that of balance and harmony, as in physical, cellular harmony, and the emotional harmony that comes with the sense of well-being.

When using Quantum Reflex Analysis, the QRA practitioner identifies precisely which organs, glands, tissue, or functions are indicating structural weakness or nutritional deficiency. Most often, it is simply an interference field caused by the metabolites left behind at the site of any injury or trauma. The longer the time passes without making use of exogenous cation exchange, the greater the damage to the organ or gland suffering a reflex, or reflection, of the area interfered with by the metabolites.

Admittedly, that's a bit of a mouthful, and still, it's truer than most of the words ever uttered in the lifetime of a medical doctor. Nothing on earth has proven to be anywhere near as precise as QRA.

Without QRA, the naturopathic physician advises the patient on the methods most appropriate for creating a return to health.  In order to become free of illness, it is often necessary for the patient to make both dietary and lifestyle changes.  Homeopathy or acupuncture are often used to stimulate recovery.  Herbal medicines may be used as tonics and nutritive agents to support and strengthen weakened systems, while specific nutritional agents such as vitamin and mineral supplements and glandular tissue extracts might also be utilized.  Hydrotherapy and various types of physical therapy may be required.  Additionally, it is important that major emotional stresses be eased to allow the digestive system to function in the relaxed environment required for proper digestion.

Finally, underlying many illnesses is a spiritual disharmony.  This may be experienced as a feeling of deep unease or insufficient strength of will necessary to sustain the healing process.  For lasting good health to be established, this disharmony must be overcome.  Naturopathic physicians can play an important role in guiding patients to discover the course of action most appropriate.

Naturopathic Medicine - Conditions that Benefit

Naturopathic medicine can be applied in any health care situation, but its strongest area is in the treatment of chronic and degenerative disease.

Where acute health issues are, more often than not, the province of the allopath, who can deal with trauma, blood loss, and other acute issues, using the best tools known to Mankind. How many of those tools are used, and how masterfully, is as individual an issue as is QRA, where every look at the body relates only to the immediate patient, thereby promoting considerably greater accuracy in identifying strengths and weaknesses. On the naturopath, using naturopathic or natural medicines, is trained in dealing with chronic issues of health, long-term issues.

Naturopaths are, for the most part, licensed primary care/general practice family physicians.  For severe, acute traumas such as a serious automobile accident, emergencies of childbirth, or orthopedic problems requiring corrective surgery, naturopathic medicine is not recommended, although it can contribute to such cases, especially in the recovery phase.

In other cases, such as ear infections and common illnesses with fever, the naturopathic physician addresses the associated pain, infection, and fever of the condition, as well as any related concerns of the patient.  How this acute condition might relate to underlying causes, such as diet, life stresses, and occupational hazards, is also addressed.  The physician will then usually prescribe a variety of means to deal with the immediate problem.

In the chronic cases, the procedure is different.  Typically, a thorough case exploration will detail the history and nature of the patient's symptoms and complaints, his or her complete health history, and the patient's lifestyle.  Finally, a physical examination and appropriate laboratory tests are performed.  For naturopathic physicians, understanding the patient as an individual is essential when searching for causative factors, particularly in the areas of the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual.

After determining causative factors, the physician will discuss his or her findings with the patient, and an attempt will be made to tie together and interpret the symptoms.  Symptoms usually relate to a central problem that has many manifestations.  As an example, many symptoms can be tied to the effects of toxemia on the different symptoms of the body such as the immune system, nervous system or circulatory system.  Others may be due to emotional factors, such as a chronic urinary tract infection when there is a history of sexual abuse.

Finally, dietary factors are determined and appropriate changes are recommended.  Any other perceived causes are addressed with either counseling, exercise, or other methods of treatment.

Healing the Person, Not the Disease

Naturopathic medicine does not focus on disease symptoms, but, rather, underlying causes.  For example, the body has four major organs that assist in elimination; the lungs, kidneys, bowels, and skin.  Most skin diseases are viewed by naturopathic physicians to be the result of excessive metabolic toxicity in the body, forcing the skin to be used as an extra route of elimination.  The skin excretes both water-soluble and oil-soluble wastes through the sweat and oil glands.  Because the elimination of toxins is irritating to the skin, the result is often various forms of skin-related disorders such as dermatitis and acne..

Naturopathic Medicine
What Is a Naturopathic Physician Trained to Do?

Many modern naturopathic doctors provide complete diagnostic and therapeutic services. QRA practitioners have no need to diagnose, since the best naturopathic doctors do not give primary focus, or much at all, to SYMPTOMS, only to the underlying causes of those symptoms.

The Health Zen of Longevity suggests that, when a medical doctor cuts out a cancer, he or she is hardly proving to fit into the category of "best doctors" or "top doctors," not by any stretch of the human imagination....

because the Health Zen of Longevity posits that cutting out a cancer has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with removing or ameliorating WHAT CAUSED THE CANCER!!!

Since it is hard to describe someone who graduates medical school as "stupid," the Health Zen of Longevity surmises and often concludes that only greed, full-fledged greed and disregard for the welfare of fellow human beings can drive this, because cutting out a cancer only exposes the inside of the body, and the tumor being excised, to more oxygen, which further feeds the cancer itself, and serves to hasten the return of the cancer.

ADDRESSING UNDERLYING CAUSES is the province of the naturopathic doctor, which is why naturopathic doctors demonstrate far, far higher rates of success than any allopathic paradigm examined by or within the Health Zen of Longevity.

Do you even know that most cancer patients who are said to die of cancer, whose death certificates most often list cancer as the cause of death.... ... do not actually die of cancer, they die FROM THE MEDICAL TREATMENT FOR CANCER!?!?!?

How outrageous, unacceptably, criminally outrageous. Medical doctors know this, and still, they want thousands of dollars per hour to pay for genuinely, indisputably obscene luxuries, declared by the Health Zen of Longevity to be luxury to equal or exceed anything else described as "obscene," because catastrophic illness is the single greatest cause for personal bankruptcies in America... causing more families to be financially wiped out.... more than all other causes of bankruptcy and financial ruin... COMBINED.

Naturopathic doctors are, for the most part, enjoying a reputation for repudiating the call of the lucre, the pull of the cash.   As family doctors, many practice natural childbirth (usually in the home setting), pediatrics, gynecology, and geriatrics.  Naturopathic physicians make recommendations on lifestyle, diet, and exercise, and utilize a variety of natural and noninvasive healing techniques.

You are advised by the brain trust beneath the foundations of the Health Zen of Longevity that non-invasive approaches such as QRA (Quantum Reflex Analysis) will give you faster information at a fraction of the cost... WITH MANY, MANY times the accuracy of most anything used by a medical doctor who is NOT a QRA practitioner

Even for those who do not know how to do QRA testing at home, or who have never even heard of QRA testing, still and all have many choices that prove to be physically safer, more effective, and, of course, far cheaper than the medical approach.

Some of the approaches and methods that naturopathic physicians are trained in include: clinical nutrition; botanical or herbal medicine; homeopathy; acupuncture; hydrotherapy; physical medicine including massage and therapeutic manipulation; counseling and other psychotherapies; and minor surgery.

  • Clinical nutrition The use of diet as a therapy serves as the foundation of naturopathic medicine.  There is an ever-increasing body of knowledge that supports the use of whole foods and nutritional supplements in the maintenance of health and treatment of disease.

  • Herbal medicine, another core of the Health Zen of Longevity: Plants have been used as medicines since antiquity.  Naturopathic physicians are professionally trained herbalists and know both the historical and medicinal uses of plants.
  • Homeopathy: The term homeopathy is derived from the Greek word, homoios, meaning "similar," and pathos, meaning "suffering."  Homeopathy is a system of medicine that treats a disease with dilute, potentized remedies that will produce the same symptoms as the disease when given to a healthy individual.  The fundamental principle operating here is that like cures like.  Homeopathic medicines are derived from a variety of plant, mineral, and chemical substances.

  • Acupuncture: Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese system of medicine involving the stimulation of certain specific points on the body to enhance the flow of vital life energy qi along pathways called meridians.  Acupuncture points are stimulated by the insertion and withdrawal of needles, the application of heat (moxibustion), acupressure (deep finger pressure), lasers, electrical means, or a combustion of these methods.

  • Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy uses water in all its temperatures (hot, cold), forms (ice, steam), and methods of application (sitz baths, douches, spas, whirlpools, saunas, showers, immersion baths, packs, poultices, foot baths, fomentations, wraps, colonic irrigations), in the maintenance of health or treatment of disease.  It is one of the most ancient methods of treatment.  Hydrotherapy has been used to treat disease and injury by many different cultures, including the Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Hebrews, Hindus, Chinese, and Native Americans.

  • Physical medicine: Physical medicine refers to the use of physical measures in the treatment of disease.  These include: therapeutic exercise, massage, joint mobilization (manipulation) and immobilization techniques, and hydrotherapy.  Physical medicine also includes physiotherapy equipment such as ultrasound (high frequency sound waves that act as a micro-massage to tissues, stimulating or restoring function or blood circulation), diathermy (high frequency currents used to generate heat within the body), electric currents used in the body to stimulate function or relieve pain, and light therapy (applications of light that are used to stimulate heating responses in the body, such as endocrine function or increased circulation).

  • Effective guidance and lifestyle modification: Counseling and lifestyle modification techniques are essential to naturopathic medicine.  A naturopathic physician is formally trained in the following counseling areas: 1) Interviewing and responding skills, active listening, body language assessment, and other contact skills necessary for the therapeutic relationship; 2) Recognition and understanding of prevalent psychological issues including developmental problems, sexual dysfunction, abnormal behavior, addictions, and stress; 3) Various treatment measures including hypnosis and guided imagery, counseling techniques, correction of underlying organic factors, and family therapy.

The Future of Naturopathic Medicine

"To the uninformed, naturopathic medicine, as well as the entire concept of natural medicine, appears to be a fad that will soon pass away," says Michael Murray, N.D., of Seattle, Washington.  "To the informed, however, it is quite clear that naturopathic medicine is at the forefront of the future."

One of the great fallacies promoted by the United States medical establishment is that there is not firm scientific evidence for the use of many natural therapies.This assumption is simply not true," according to Dr. Murray.In fact, during the last ten or twenty years there has been a literal explosion of information in the scientific literature supporting the use of natural medicine."

Today, science and medicine have the technology and understanding necessary to appreciate many aspects of natural medicine.  It is becoming increasingly common for medical organizations which in the past have spoken out strongly against naturopathic medicine to embrace it, endorsing naturopathic techniques such as lifestyle modification, stress reduction, exercise, and a high-fiber diet.

"This illuminates the paradigm shift that is occurring in medicine," says Dr. Murray.  "What was once scoffed at is now becoming generally accepted as an effective alternative.  In fact, in most instances the naturopathic alternative offers significant benefit over standard medical practices.  Undoubtedly in the future many of the concepts, philosophies, and practices of naturopathy will be vindicated.  Certainly the future looks very bright for naturopathic medicine."


What to expect when you visit a Naturopathic Physician

Typically, an office visit with a naturopathic doctor takes about an one hour.   Your naturopathic physician considers teaching you how to live healthfully to be one of his or her primary goals, so the time devoted to discussing and explaining principles of health maintenance, as well as your medical condition, is one of the factors that sets naturopaths apart from conventional physicians, who often seem to be rushing from patient to patient.

The relationship begins with a thorough medical history and interview process designed to view all aspects of your lifestyle.  If needed, the physician will perform standard diagnostic procedures including a physical exam and blood and urine analysis.  Once a good understanding of your health and disease status is established (diagnosing an illness is only one part of this process), you and your doctor work together to establish a treatment and health-promoting program.
