NATUROPATHY

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system, emphasizing prevention and self-healing process through the use of natural therapies. It utilizes therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing process. The practice of naturopathic medicine includes modern and traditional, scientific, and empirical methods.

Naturopathic Foundation Principles:
   
    * The Healing Power of Nature
    * Identify and Treat the Causes, Not Just the Symptoms
    * Do No Harm
    * The Physician is a Teacher
    * Treat the Whole Patient
    * Prevention

Naturopathic Practice
   
Naturopathic practice includes the following diagnostic and therapeutic modalities: clinical and laboratory diagnostic testing, nutritional medicine, botanical medicine, naturopathic physical medicine (including naturopathic manipulative therapy), public health measures, hygiene, counseling, minor surgery, homeopathy, acupuncture, prescription medication, intravenous and injection therapy, and naturopathic obstetrics (natural childbirth).
   
The therapeutic modalities used in naturopathic medicine integrate conventional, scientific and empirical methodology with the ancient laws of nature.

Homeopathic remedies are an adjunctive therapy in our practice.  We prescribe them as point-injections or in tablet forms.
   
Homotoxicology was developed by Hans-Heinrich Reckeweg, M.D. and has been used in combinations of homeopathic ingredients and remedies to treat specific problems. Homeopathic combination remedies are primarily designed to facilitate the body's elimination of toxic substances by stimulating the body's own defensive capabilities.
   
According to Homotoxicology, diseases are biological processes. The body is combating poisons and wants to neutralize and excrete these poisons.
   
In homotoxicology, diseases are considered to be caused by toxins, including substances from environmental sources and internal by-products. Disease symptoms are considered the result of the body's attempt to heal and should not necessarily be suppressed.
    
Homeopathic supplements are designed to work with the body's defense mechanisms and facilitate elimination of toxic substances. Anti-homotoxic medicines come in many forms: tablets, drops, sprays and injectables.
   
The homeopathic products can be administered orally or by point-injection (biopuncture).

Acu-point injection (biopuncture, mesotherapy) is injecting of homeopathic products into specific trigger points of the body and it is an alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory products and cortisone.
   
The point-injection is less painful than the regular injections because it utilizes fine needles and small injected quantity of homeopathic product.
   
We feature products from Heel (Biologische Heilmittel Heel GmbH), one of the largest homeopathic pharmaceutical manufacturers in the world. For more than 60 years, Heel has offered safe, effective and comprehensive homeotherapy to the world. Heel conducts continuous clinical research and scientific investigations to determine product efficacy and safety.
