What Is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a system of health care that relies on natural remedies, diet, exercise, and changes in lifestyle to heal illnesses. Naturopathic health care unites various alternative medical practices with modern scientific methods and standards of care. Naturopathic doctors are trained in both conventional and alternative health care systems and combine this knowledge according to principles that recognize the body's inherent ability to heal itself, recognizing the importance of prevention, and the use of nutrition to promote health and fight disease.

What is it that Naturopathic Doctors do?

Naturopathy is based on 4 very simple concepts:

  1. The body is a self-healing mechanism. (If you cut your finger it heals, if a finger is cut on a corpse, it doesn’t heal. It is life itself that is responsible for healing.)
  2. All of the organs in the body are designed to work together in harmony with each other.
  3. If there is interference or dysfunction with any of the body’s organ systems, a state of dis-ease or less than health (wholeness) will result.
  4. My job as a Naturopath is to locate and correct the cause of that interference or dysfunction. By using natural methods such as vitamins, minerals, herbs, homeopathic remedies, changes in diet, and so forth, I guide the body in making changes to bring it back to a state of full health (wholeness).

The evolutionary biologist Dr. Joseph Chilton Pierce stated: "nature is incapable of programming for failure." You are not born to be sick, you were born to be healthy, you were born to express health to its fullest. Nature is literally incapable of programming for sickness. If something is interfering with that program of perfection, then you will become sick and express dis-ease or unpleasant symptoms. Symptoms are the way your body tells you that something is wrong with your program.

As Naturopaths we are trained to look for interference with that program, remove that interference, and allow the body to express perfect health in the way that it was designed to.

The key to the health of your body is found within the building blocks of life: the elements, amino acids, enzymes, molecules, and atoms. When your chemistry is balanced, you will not only feel well, you will have the energy you forgot you had.

The information revealed by Biological Terrain Assessment provides a comprehensive overview of the biochemical status of each individual. When your chemistry is balanced and maintained with a healthy diet, proper vitamin and mineral supplementation, and adequate amounts of exercise and rest, your body will remain strong and healthy and nourish a vibrant immune system.

By making a precise assessment of your internal environment and individual biochemical status, we can see what changes may be needed in diet, lifestyle, and stress levels; or what nutritional supplements may be needed to rebuild your body and achieve peak health.

While many fields of medicine examine or treat one particular part or system of the body, with Biological Terrain Assessment we clinically monitor the entire internal biochemical environment of the body. The goal is to gain a deeper understanding of your chemistry and work out the exact forms of treatment to help you regain and maintain a healthy internal biochemical environment. In time, this will translate vitality and health to every cell, tissue, organ, and gland in your body. We realize that everyone is unique, and therefore every ailment must be treated specifically.

So, are you sick and tired of feeling sick and tired? Or have you had all kinds of tests run, just to be told that there is nothing wrong with you? Are you ready to stop the endless cycle of chasing symptoms and get to the cause of the problem? Then you need to have a Biological Terrain Assessment done.

Contact Reflex Analysis is a system of nutritional analysis. By using Contact Reflex Analysis, the Doctor can instantly monitor body functions with a great degree of accuracy, pinpoint nutritional deficiencies which may be contributing to functional disorders in the body, and recommend nutrition to support those deficiencies before they become a full-blown health problem.

Contact Reflex Analysis was developed through the research of Dr. Richard Versendaal starting in the 1950’s. He found that by testing the acupuncture points used by the Chinese for thousands of years, he could gain an insight into the functioning and malfunctioning of the body’s organ systems. These test points are much like circuit breakers in a fuse box, when there is a malfunction, there is an interruption in the circuit.

Utilizing the information gained from approximately 75 key points representing the various organs and glands, a nutritional program can be designed to supplement and correct the body’s deficiencies, imbalances, and weaknesses. Through additional testing, we are able to prioritize in what order each problem needs to be addressed as we work through the various layers of a patient’s condition.

We then use Designed Clinical Nutrition to correct the cause of the problem. Then the body will have the ability to heal itself. It is designed based on a specific plan for correction using whole nutrients found in nature, not some synthetic man-made chemical imitations. These specific nutrients are designed to supply the body with what it is missing or not assimilating from your diet.

To summarize: we analyze your key reflex points. We then determine the exact nutrients needed to supplement your diet and bring you back to health. We also cover specific changes in your diet and eating habits to help you to achieve the best possible results.

On future visits, another analysis can be done to see what changes have been accomplished and exposing the next layer of dis-ease which needs to be addressed. Each patient receives a totally individualized program, in the correct sequence, for their health problem. This is very much like opening a combination lock—you must use the right number in the right sequence in the right direction at the right time before the lock will open. Through Contact Reflex Analysis we can predict with certainty what the body requires to move on to the next stage of improved health.

Iridology is the science of analyzing the delicate structures of the iris of the eye. The iris reveals the body’s constitution, its inherent weaknesses, its levels of health, and the healing transitions that take place in a person’s body. Presently, as in the past, many primary health care doctors have used this form of analysis along with other diagnostic techniques in order to gain a more complete understanding of their patients’ health care needs.

We now acknowledge the eyes as the mirror of the body. A closer inspection with the newest tools available reveals the iris to be a micro-computer readout of bodily function and condition. Through iridology, it is possible to observe normal and abnormal reflex signs. It does not compare all people together to create a normal. Rather it compares each person’s strengths to their weaknesses. A weak organ in a strong body produces different characteristics, yet it is still a weakness for that person.

How It Works

The iris of the eye is the most complex tissue of the body by way of the brain and nervous system. The nerve fibers receive their impulses by way of their connections to the optic nerve, optic thalami, and the spinal cord. They are formed embryologically from mesoderm and neuroectoderm tissues. Both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems are present in the iris.

Nature has provided us with a miniature television screen showing the most remote portions of the body by way of the reflex responses. We are discovering that the eye works in two ways; not only does it enable us to bring images of the outside world within; it also shows images of what is within, to the outside.

Nerve fibers in the iris respond to changes in the body tissues by displaying a reflex physiology that corresponds to specific tissue changes and locations. The iris reveals an individual’s strengths and weaknesses and what has been done to the body through incorrect living habits.

What Is the Iridology Chart?

Today we have a map of the iris topography which guides us very accurately over its surface. In this way, it is possible to "read" tissue conditions that relate to the "whole" person being viewed. We are seeing the "whole" body at once.

The chart developed by Dr. Bernard Jensen is the fruit of over 50 years of research and intense study. Spending many years as a student of past masters of iridology, he has brought forward and incorporated those aspects and details proven to be accurate by verification in clinical practice.

Each organ is identified and those of major importance are outlined so that they are easily located. Iridology gives the doctor information concerning their patient’s health level that is not available in any other way.

Trace mineral analysis is a test which measures the mineral content of your hair. Mineral content of the hair reflects the mineral content of the body’s tissues. If a mineral deficiency or excess exists in the hair, it usually indicates a mineral deficiency or excess within the body, or bio-unavailability.

As an example: if your hair reveals an elevated calcium level two or three times normal, then your calcium level within the body may be elevated also. If this is the case, a strong tendency exists for arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries due to calcium placques).

If your calcium level is low, then a tendency exists toward osteoporosis (demineralization of bone), increased tendency to bone fractures, dental cavities, gum disease, muscle cramps, etc.

Various mineral imbalances, as revealed by hair analysis frequently lead to metabolic dysfunctions before any symptoms are seen.

  • Other Conditions Which May Result Or Be Aggravated By A Mineral Imbalance Are:

  • Depression

  • Headaches

  • Hypoglycemia

  • Hypertension

  • Hyperactivity

  • Arthritis

  • Hair Loss

  • Anemia

  • Musculo-Skeletal Disorders

  • Thyroid Disturbance

  • Cardiovascular Disease

  • Prostate Disorders

  • Skin Rashes

  • Emotional Problems

  • Digestive Disturbances

  • Allergies

  • Diabetes

Minerals are the "sparkplugs" of life. They are involved in almost all enzyme reactions within the body. Without enzyme activity, life ceases to exist. A trace mineral analysis is preventive as well as being useful as a screening tool.

Hair analysis is useful when someone is found to be ill and no explanation can be found, or when the cause seems to be found but the therapy is not wholly effective. Hair analysis opens up a whole new vista for the solving of your own particular problem by recognizing your biochemical individuality.

Even if you are not experiencing a severe problem, abnormal changes in body chemistry and nutritional deficiencies may result in early, subtle changes in the body such as:

  • White spots in fingernails—indicates a possible zinc deficiency.
  • Longitudinal ridging in nails—indicates an iron deficiency.
  • Brittle hair and nails—calcium and copper imbalance.
  • Deep grooves across nails—calcium deficiency.
  • Stretch marks—zinc deficiency.
  • Lack of growth—zinc deficiency.
  • Mood swings—possible toxic metal accumulation such as lead, mercury, or cadmium.

The above indicators are early signs of metabolic disturbances if left unchecked.

Common causes of mineral imbalances:

  • Improper diet—such as excessive intake of refined carbohydrates and sugars, strict vegetarians diets or other exclusive diets.
  • Taking vitamins and minerals which are not compatible with your current body chemistry.
  • Medications.
  • Birth control pills.
  • Stress.
  • Accumulation of toxic metals from the environment, job, or hobby.
  • Inheritance of mineral patterns from parents.

Hair analysis is a valuable screening tool which allows a correct program of diet and supplementation to be designed for each person’s specific needs. Never before has a metabolic blueprint of such a high degree of applicable scientific accuracy been available.

Did you know:

  • Women’s pre-menstrual headaches are often caused by too much copper in their system?
  • Arthritis pain can be caused by lead, cadmium, or mercury poisoning?
  • Taking too much of any one vitamin or mineral can be harmful?
  • Too much vitamin C can actually make an infection worse in certain metabolic types?
  • Adolescent acne can be caused by lead or copper poisoning, as well as a zinc deficiency?
  • Approximately 80% of our population lack the necessary enzymes and stomach acids to digest their food?
  • Hyperactive children often have too much lead in their systems?
  • The male prostate gland contains more zinc than any other organ in the body, therefore adequate zinc levels are important for male potency.
  • Diuretics, often prescribed for patients with high blood pressure and heart trouble, can decrease your potassium supply?
  • High levels of copper and iron in the body tissue can cause migraine headaches, and even schizophrenia?
  • Lead toxicity is linked to multiple sclerosis?
  • Zinc deficiency can retard bone development and produce malformed sex organs?
  • Doctors often diagnose heart attacks by the amount of the mineral manganese in the body?
  • Chromium, magnesium, manganese, and vitamin B6 deficiency are related to diabetes?
  • Vitamin C, vitamin B complex, zinc, and manganese are being used to treat schizophrenia?
  • Vitamin B2, folic acid, vitamin E, zinc, and chromium are important for users of birth control pills?
  • Magnesium deficiency is related to epilepsy, leukemia, heart disease, and kidney disorders?
  • Beryllium, lead, cadmium, nickel, and arsenic poisoning can cause cancer?

With natural therapies such as Naturopathy, Chiropractic, Homeopathy, herbal remedies, and other biological therapies, the patient may experience an initial increase in symptoms, or what is known as a "healing crisis". This usually lasts no more than three or four days, and can be similar to what one experiences when having a cold or the flu. It may start with a headache, body ache, and occasional fever with perspiration. Or one may just feel very tired and sluggish. Doctors from the old school welcome these symptoms as the initiation of the healing process.

To understand this process, let’s take the example of developing a bacterial infection. It may start with a scratchy throat, then develop into other bodily symptoms including fever. Within a few days the fever reaches a peak, then slowly drops along with a decrease of symptoms. This is the natural course of the body’s healing mechanism. Naturally, many people become impatient when they are feeling ill with a cold or flu, particularly if it lasts longer than a few days, and they seek outside intervention. They go to a physician and obtain, for example, a prescription for antibiotics.

Antibiotics can indeed be very effective in interrupting the natural cycle of bacterial infections (they are useless against viral infections). This process can, however, lead to other complications.

If the antibiotic kills the microorganisms responsible for the illness, the distressful symptoms subside. The body, though, is now flooded with dead microorganisms. If it has the strength and vitality to eliminate these toxic residuals via the kidneys, liver, skin, and intestines, then there is no problem in regaining health. If, however, the body lack vitality because of poor nutrition, constipation, or a lack of fluid intake (especially clean water), then the body is not able to completely flush out these toxic metabolic wastes.

The storage place for toxic metabolic wastes is primarily the connective tissue, which is present throughout the body. Connective tissue is like glue that holds the cells together.

Most people are born with inherited constitutional weaknesses in one or more organs or organ systems. Following the path of least resistance, the body uses these weak areas first as storage places. This is why, when one is ill with a cold or flu, some people experience the symptoms in the stomach, some in the chest, some in the intestines, and others, in the muscles or joints. The same microorganisms can cause different symptoms in different people.

Over a lifetime, regular treatment with antibiotics and other anti-inflammatory drugs can fill this storage place with residual toxins, which can eventually interfere with the function of the particular organ system.

The cells cannot get the nutrition they need or rid themselves of their own metabolic wastes. Consider the following illustration.

Imagine that your house is invaded by a hundred mice. You proceed to get rid of them by putting out poison. In a very short time the mice are all dead. You now try to locate the hundred dead mice but can find only seventy. Some of them have disappeared into the walls and under the floors, and you just can’t seem to find them. What will happen after about two weeks? Your house will begin to reek with the foul odor of decaying mice, which have polluted your house just as dead metabolites from past infections can pollute your body when they cannot be properly eliminated.

Simple illnesses such as colds and the flu are handled in the body by developing a fever. The fever is designed to slowly kill the disease-causing microorganisms. This guarantees that the body does not become overloaded with residuals and can detoxify itself slowly and naturally.

The symptoms in a healing crisis are the result of the right therapy unlocking the toxic storage places and expelling the accumulated toxins from the body. This is the only effective and permanent cure for chronic illnesses and diseases.

Of course, during any natural detoxification process, the detoxifying organs such as the lymph system, liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, and skin may need support with individually selected drainage remedies. Eating a large variety of fresh vegetables, avoiding sweets and decreasing the intake of meat is advisable. If one still feels weak or tired, rest more and cut back on strenuous exercise. Decrease alcohol and stimulant intake. One should also drink plenty of pure, clean water (no tap or distilled water), and avoid stress as much as possible.

Finally, GOOD COMMUNICATION with your doctor is imperative! Sometimes with a slight adjustment in the dosage schedule one can feel better immediately and the body can get on with healing itself. Remember that the discomfort experienced is only temporary—the result of the body pulling out old toxins. According to some of the greatest European doctors, the stronger the initial reaction, the more the body really eliminates by pulling at the deep roots of the disease.

To use another analogy, it’s like removing a splinter form one’s hand. One is able to get along reasonably well with the splinter for quite some time. Even if it hurts, one can still function. Pulling the splinter out will cause more pain for a short moment. The short-term discomfort, however, is well worth not having the chronic pain.

If there have been many illnesses or diseases in a patient’s history, the detoxification therapy may take the body through a series of regressions during which the patient can experience symptoms of EACH past illness. Should this occur, the patient ought to feel encouraged rather than discouraged, for the symptoms are a positive indication that the therapy has a deep detoxifying effect.

As Dr. Albert Schweitzer so aptly expressed it, "A good therapy is one that stimulates the healer within."
