“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well” – Hippocrates
Natural Therapy is an essential adjunct to Nutritional Therapy where nature has given us the tools to regenerate the cells of our body. In order for the body to become healthy once again and, more importantly, to stay healthy, one needs to detoxify the body on a regular basis. By detoxifying one’s body it will be the first step towards homeostatis ie where the body becomes ‘balanced’ once again and from where it is more able to stave off disease, be it chronic or degenerative.
Natural therapy encompasses a broad range of disciplines, all of which aim to treat the physical and emotional well-being of the client or patient without recourse to conventional drugs or medication.
One of the primary attractions of natural therapies is that the vast majority of them have few or no discernible side effects and are drug-free. This is in contrast to conventional medications which always have consequences for the duration and, quite often, after they have been prescribed. For many, this makes natural therapies an attractive alternative.
Why do people turn to natural therapies?
Orthodox medicine, unfortunately, does not have all the answers and the most obvious is the inability of modern medicine to treat viruses such as HIV or the common cold for that matter. Natural therapy can make an individual feel empowered by offering advice and guidance that can help the individual regain their health and also by allowing them to have more control over their treatments.
Stress has proven to be one of the major causes of illness and degenerative disease and natural therapy offers therapeutic benefits which are often linked to enhanced self-awareness and, as a result, a decline in stress and tension.
Holistic and Non-Invasive
Many natural therapies take an holistic and non-invasive approach to healing. The holistic approach takes account of the physical and emotional aspects of an individual’s health, with a view to preventing negative impacts such as disease and illness taking hold.
