Root Out: Nurture: Maintain

How Natural Healing Works

Thyroiditis, Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Pancreatitis, Adrenal Fatigue, Fatty Liver, and the list goes on – so many ailments plague our modern day. While Western medical science keeps searching for answers blaming genetics, to bad luck, to “old age” – naturopathic minded care givers still hold to the common belief that the dis-ease comes from something within that is not meant to be in the body that is causing inflammation and dysfunction of a particular organ, gland, or body system. Instead of looking to take care of symptoms of the issue, natural medicine seeks to root out the hidden underlying cause, nourish and nurture the injured system back to health, and maintain wellness with holistic means.

Rooting Out Underlying Causes

Various types of therapies are useful in determining which systems need attention and detoxification. Prayer and discernment are critical in finding the right person to help. Examples such as:

  • Spiritual Restoration: Inner Healing like Heart Sync, Fasting and Prayer
  • Non-Western: Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and Ayurvedic Medicines, Homeopathy
  • Non-Invasive Diagnostics: Muscle Response Testing, Iridology, Bio-Feedback
  • Physical Therapies: Chiropractic, Massage, Core Synchronization
  • Creation Based Aids: Nutritional Supplements, Herbs, Real Food, Essential Oils

Nourishing and Nurturing Injured Systems

Once the systems have been identified and the toxins that need to be removed, it’s time to put together a plan. Utilize specific herbal combinations designed to provide tools to individual systems to do as they were created to do – repair and heal themselves. Combine with nutritional supplements to aid the body to build back up. Avoid foods and toxins that hinder and harm the body so that it can restore itself efficiently.  Some examples: the thyroid appreciates sea vegetables; the muscular skeletal appreciates boswellia, Vitamin K &D and more; the brain loves medicinal mushrooms, gotu kola, and others. Best to include not only Western herbs, but Chinese and Ayurvedic ones as well.

Maintain Wellness

Once systems have re-established their God given balance, best to continue on with traditional, whole, organic foods, nutritional supplements to fill in the gaps, and any additional herbal supports. Also, it’s good to check in periodically with holistic health professionals from time to time, because life happens. Remember we are a whole person – mind, body, and soul.
