A Dutch scientist invented a self-healing concrete in 2015 that, when used properly, uses bacteria to heal itself. The concept of naturopathy is very similar to that of self-healing concrete. With naturopathy, instead of using bacteria to heal, you are able to heal yourself through proper care of your body. Simply put, naturopathy’s goal is to help you help yourself. Naturopathy can have some pretty exciting benefits for people who try it, so keep reading to learn how naturopathy can help you.

Improve Overall Health
Since the main focus of naturopathy is taking care of the body as a whole, people who choose to visit a natural health clinic tend to be healthier overall. Naturopathy focuses on factors that are impeding your overall health like health history, diet, drug and alcohol use, and major stressors in your life. Addressing these factors can help an individual reach a healthy weight, be happier overall, and even help to prevent other diseases. By removing your personal obstacles that challenge your holistic health, your body has the tools it needs to better protect itself from contracting any diseases or conditions in the future. The body naturally has systems in place to heal itself and maintain balance. Naturopathy just helps the body return to a state where it can continue to do what it does naturally — heal!
Treatment for a Variety of Conditions
Naturopathic practitioners treat a wide variety of people and conditions. Many naturopathic doctors are qualified to treat children, adults, and the elderly with both physical and mental afflictions. Traditionally, naturopathy has seen the most success with these conditions:
- Chronic diseases that don’t respond to traditional, evidence-based medicine
- Chronic fatigue
- Chronic pain
- Chronic insomnia
- Chronic digestive disorders
- Type II Diabetes
Alternative health practices like naturopathy have also shown to be effective in helping people with weight loss — especially in those who have tried and had trouble losing weight in the past.
Naturopathic doctors tend to take a personalized approach to treatment that makes it possible to provide treatment for a wide variety of unique and individualized cases. A talented naturopathic doctor listens and responds to the individual needs of their patient and creates a customized treatment plan using supplements, detoxifications, and herbals remedies. Occasionally, naturopathic treatments utilize counseling or refer you to a trusted therapist to help treat more complex mental afflictions.
Naturopathy is Safe and Cost Effective
Since naturopathic treatment is all natural and only uses treatment methods that promote the overall health of the patient, they are amongst the lowest-risk treatment options you can choose from. The goal is to kickstart the body’s own self-healing mechanisms — nothing is safer than that! Additionally, since treatment plans are individualized instead of administered cookie-cutter style, the naturopathic Dr. is certain to take extra precautions to make sure that you are getting the safest and most effective treatment option for you.
In the U.S., it’s no secret that the health care system currently in place is EXPENSIVE. People are terrified to get sick or hurt because it may bankrupt them. Naturopathy is significantly more affordable than most other medical alternatives, and it is even recognized by some insurance providers, subsidizing the price even further.
These are just the tip of the iceberg as far as benefits that naturopathy can offer! Feel free to reach out to us with any questions about naturopathy, or to schedule a consultation!
