The Healing Power of Nature | Principles of Naturopathic Medicine


The second principle of Naturopathic Medicine is ๐“๐‡๐„ ๐‡๐„๐€๐‹๐ˆ๐๐† ๐๐Ž๐–๐„๐‘ ๐Ž๐… ๐๐€๐“๐”๐‘๐„. โฃ


While this principle is based on the idea of ๐—ฉ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜… ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ฒ or the body's innate ability to heal itself, I like to think of it as a two- pronged approach to naturopathic medicine. โฃ


Our bodies are smart. They are a machine. And when they are well cared for, they will run the way we want them to. โฃ


But sometimes we need to get back to our roots. And this is where the two-pronged approach comes in. Our bodies are smart and can heal with nature. โฃ


So I like to think of this principle as including the literal healing power of nature.โฃ


Harnessing the power of nature can mean using hydrotherapy, botanicals, homeopathy and even manual therapies such as massage and adjustments!


Curious about botanicals and want a little refresher on tinctures? You can find a post about that here.
