Naturopathy and Naturopathic medicine is an alternative healing approach that applies natural therapies for self-healing. The approaches used are based upon sound nutrition, biomedicine, physiology, biochemistry and time proven protocols that have been used for centuries to help the body heal.
The foundations of naturopathy are…
- Fasting protocols that induce the body into ketosis to produce ketones for eliminating toxins from the body, whilst increasing energy production, mood, weight loss and internal cleansing of the body which allows the body to self-health and regulate by stimulating the immune system and endocrine system to balance hormones.
- Dietary adjustments including nutritional and herbal supplements to support detox and gradual recovery of health.
For example; Colloidal Silver has been thoroughly researched and proven to be a potent immune booster that increases our red blood cell, white blood cell and platelet count including haemoglobin. Colloidal silver has been shown in several studies to destroy bacteria, yeast infections and virus, thus proving to be a very useful aid in protecting our health. It is safe to use in infants, children and elderly. Colloidal silver has no contra-indications or side effects while taking other medications. It is similar to a homeopathic remedy, and is 100% safe and very effective.
Sean Paynter has been successfully using Colloidal Silver for 20 years and undergone basic research to back up claims and efficiency.
- Hydrotherapy involves the use of hot and cold packs and sits bath which influences blood circulation and blood flow to vital organs to support self-healing.
- Exercise to support mind and body. Improves cardiovascular health, mental health, better sleep, muscle and bone strength, flexibility, increased energy, pain reduction and weight loss.
In addition, some Naturopaths also practice alternative therapies such as Homeopathy, herbal medicine or ozone therapy to assist the body into self-healing and recovery.
Modern technology, environmental pollution, poor diets, stress and decreased nutrients in food from soil depletion from excessive use of fertilisers all play a significant role in the deterioration of our health.
The principles of Naturopathy were first used by the Hippocratic School of Medicine around 400 BC. The Greek philosopher Hippocrates believed in viewing the whole person in regards to finding the underlying cause of disease and using the laws of nature to induce healing.
Naturopathy is about empowering and guiding the patient to take responsibility and control of their own health by teaching self-care using the principle foundations as outlined.
Prevention is better than “cure” to reduce the likelihood of catching an illness/disease or any deteriorating health condition such as allergies.
This couldn´t be more relevant especially if planning to have children or if conceiving has not been successful. Often when no underlying medical conditions have been detected or low fertility is an issue, naturopathy can be very successful in finding a solution.
Mr Sean Paynter is a practicing Osteopath and Naturopath at the Brooks-Carter clinic where appointments can be booked to help assist anyone struggling with underlying health issues/conditions such as weight-loss, immune strengthening and support, detox and fasting protocols to improve vitality and overall health and well-being.
