How We Approach Healthy Living
We live in a modern society that is increasingly disconnected from nature. Let’s face it, can anyone really deny that the health of most Americans seems to be in steady decline? As a traditional naturopath, I understand that people just like yourself are urgently searching the Internet looking for answers. We want to know how to overcome emerging new chronic health problems like Lyme disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Autism and other diseases that respond poorly to conventional medicine.
Fortunately, in order to recover from a variety of health issues you’re not required to have all the answers. You need to have a confident direction and your body will do the rest. The responsibility of a traditional naturopath is to provide some guidance on how to methodically unload your body from the unnatural burdens that forced it into a “cope” situation. We assist by giving your body’s innate healing force an opportunity to kick in.
Quick Fixes Don’t Work:
Health Problems are Complex
Are there simple solutions to complex problems? No….not normally. But the media can be confusing. After reading a few ads for multi-level natural supplements, miracle waters and other gadgets touted to cure all your ailments, you might think it’s done with little effort on your part. The allure of a pill or a quick fix is misleading. It encourages us to continue abusing our bodies in the lifestyle to which we are accustomed. Once the initial excitement of the instant gratification wears off, we are left with a startling realization. We still feel unwell or have a chronic health problem remaining. Why is that?
There are rarely simple solutions to complex problems. Health problems are, by their very nature, complex. They are often brought about by a web of interlinking negative factors that typically take place over a long period of time. Eventually the body simply can’t cope any longer and starts breaking down.
Your Body Leans Toward Wellness:
Taking Back Control of Your Health
The good news is that health is a force of nature! Your body wants to be well and it knows how to get there. The human body has a natural innate tendency to heal itself. Quite often individuals born with poor health have rebounded to excellent health early on because they were forced to learn healthy living. On the other hand, someone born with health typically has to do a lot of negative, unnatural things to their body in order to overcome this innate healing capacity and end up chronically ill.
So, here you are….looking for answers! To clarify something: there are plenty of people working in the natural health field who make dogmatic pronouncements, yet have little training and experience. They will be more than happy to lead you down a primrose path! You have to be smart about choosing what natural interventions to use. If someone claims to have all the answers, your alarm bells should go off. An effective natural health practitioner does not claim to have all the answers.

Solutions for Natural Health
These solutions can logically be divided into two categories. The first is healthy lifestyle changes. To support natural therapies in creating long term, positive health changes you must be willing to do the following:
change unhealthy eating habits and maintain a healthy weight
get reasonable amounts of exercise based on your current ability
go to bed at night and have a good pattern of sleep hygiene
