Most of you might be aware with what naturopathy or natural medicine really is but not is clear on the concept of it. So we are going to explain you what naturopathy is and why is it considered to be so useful.
As the name suggests, naturopathy or natural medicine is a form of alternative medicine which includes a wide range of natural modalities. Now these modalities which are included in naturopathy are acupuncture, herbalism and homeopathy. It also includes lifestyle counseling and diet.
Rather than being evidence – based medicine, the methods and ideology of naturopathy is more based on self – healing and vitalism. Naturopaths tend to recommend a more holistic and non-invasive methods instead of modern medicine which includes a wide range like vaccination, drugs and even surgery. Naturopaths tend to teach their students in opposing of all the vaccines and instead teach them anti or alternative vaccine practices which tend to result in lower vaccination rates. If we go by the words of the American Cancer Society, they have established that scientific evidence does not support any kind of claims which state that naturopathic medicine can cure any kind of disease or cancer which naturopaths widely claim by the way.
The term “naturopathy” was originated from a Latin root of birth “natura” and “pathos” which means suffering in Greek and it suggests the term “natural healing”. Modern naturopathy has seemingly grown out of the Natural cure Movement of Europe.
If you have any serious problem or a condition or a disease which can turn deadly, then it is highly recommended that you consult an actual doctor, and if you want you can give naturopathy a try but it is still highly recommended that you go to a doctor if you think you have a serious issue.
