A naturopath always emphasizes nutrition as being fundamental to healing and health: What we eat is THE foundation for health, longevity and childhood development.
Infection is linked to malnutrition. This is well-documented in literature dating back millennia.
We who live in this abundant country are overfed yet undernourished.
Among the many therapies a Naturopath uses, helping people make wise decisions concerning nutrition is vital. Better nutrition means stronger immune systems, less illness and better health. Healthy children learn better. Better nutrition is a prime entry point to ending illness and a milestone to achieving a better quality of life.
Modalities of a Naturopath
Naturopathic medicine is primary health care that utilizes natural therapies, including both modern and traditional methods of treatment. We help people of all ages suffering from both acute and chronic diseases, from the common cold and flu to most modern ailments. We have a range of experience helping people with such conditions as arthritis, thyroid disease, osteoporosis, depression, fibromyalgia, IBS, PMS, psoriasis, acid reflux, sleep problems, stress, ADD/ADHD, infections, parasites, etc.
I can help you to support your body’s own healing abilities and strive to empower you to make lifestyle changes necessary for optimal health. There are many naturopaths here in Houston and we all follow the same basic principles.
Principles of the Naturopath
- First Do No Harm
- Use the Healing Power of Nature
- Find the cause
- Treat the whole person
- Naturopath as Teacher
We work in harmony with the body and with nature. Naturopathy utilizes a holistic approach to healing, addressing the whole person: body and mind. The core of naturopathic medicine is to treat each person as an individual and to consider his or her whole being. We do not treat one bodily system as a separate entity from the rest of the person’s body and psyche. It is equally important to care for the mind, the body, and the spirit, in the appropriate manner for each person. We must work together as a team to manifest health and vitality.
