In today’s day and age, we are constantly searching for alternative solutions to those which have been accepted as the norm, when those norms are no longer working for us. Having access to a great wealth of resources, such as the internet, has enabled people all over the world to discover various methods and tools to better their life, when the traditional methods are not helping. Although these are powerful tools, it is important to also remember that not everything you read on such open platforms is true, and it is important to filter out the information that will help, not hinder, you. This can be difficult to determine when you have pages and pages of what seems to be valid products and treatments, all of which claim to better your life in one way or another.
A naturopathic approach to the treatment of ailments and disease is becoming more accepted and common, due to it’s astounding effectiveness and proven results. From the time of it’s inception in Canada in the 1920’s, more and more people have turned to naturopathy as a holistic approach to prevent, manage and cure a variety of health-related issues. In the last 20 years, this number has immensely increased, due the dissatisfaction of standardized health care, and patients wanting to have more control over their treatment. At the same time, there has been a massive influx of holistic remedies on the market, not all of which perform to the same standard. In order to ensure you are choosing the correct and most effective product for you, it is important to be well educated and informed.
The most sure and efficient way to determine which product is right for you is to speak with your Naturopathic Doctor. No one understands the effects of nature’s remedies on the body more than a trained professional, who is more than happy to find the right solution for you. This is especially important when you are taking more than one naturopathic medication, or combining a naturopathic medication with conventional medicine, in order to prevent contradictions and adverse effects. Licensed ND’s (Naturopathic Doctors) must complete a minimum of 7 years of intensive education, along with at least 1500 hours of clinical practise and passing multiple, rigorous exams before obtaining their license. Needless to say, consulting with a Naturopathic Doctor is the surest way to get the right treatment for you.
In addition, your Naturopathic Doctor will be the first to know when a new holistic advance emerges, and be able to understand it’s validity and effectiveness. For example, Bioidentical Hormones have recently been introduced as an effective way to regain balance in the hormonal levels of both men and women. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) combats the deficiencies of hormones that can be brought on by aging and replaces them with bio-identical hormones that the body would otherwise naturally produce. This is a huge step forward in the treatment of menopause, perimenopause, andropause and difficulty of weight-loss. The severity of hormonal imbalance varies from case to case, however some people find that it severely impacts their quality of life. Mood swings, physical discomfort and physical changes in the body are a few of the symptoms that can be treated. Many woman suffering from hindering menopausal effects have finally found relief in this revolutionary treatment. BHRT is just one way that a new naturopathic remedy has improved the lives of countless people.
Another advantage to speaking with a holistic professional is that they can look deeper into the very root of the problem. Many symptoms and ailments that we experience can be the cause of energy imbalances in our bodies, something which traditional doctors do not account for. A blockage of the energy flow through your body can create symptoms that cannot be healed except for by energy work. These types of cases can be treated with Reiki, a type of energy balancing by a professional which can help you both mentally and physically. Many causes of dis-ease stem from both acute or chronic energy imbalances or flows, which are caused by anything from a traumatic event, to consistent, everyday stress.
With the increasing popularity of naturopathic medicines and remedies, it is very important that patients are both educated and safe with their final treatments. Although it may look like an easy choice, some holistic approaches can be better than others. This is why it is so important to consult with a Naturopathic Doctor, in order to obtain a treatment plan that is tailored to your symptoms and needs, as well as keeping you safe and minimizing any risk of adverse affects. With Naturopathy on the rise, this will only become more and more crucial.
