Naturopathic medicine (or naturopathy) is based on the belief that the organism can heal itself in a natural way. Naturopathy is aimed at health condition improving, illnesses prevention and curing. It motivates people to eat organic products and to do physical exercises; encouraging the healthy well-balanced way of life; and applying other methods of alternative medicine (like Ayurveda, homeopathy, and phytotherapy).

Naturopathic Medicine and Autoimmune Disease
The New York Times Magazine published a compelling piece this week, “The Boy With a Thorn in His Joints” by Susannah Meadows, written by a mother of little boy who had been diagnosed with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). After pursuing appropriate diagnostic workups and trying the conventional medical approaches to no avail, Ms. Meadows and her family decided to pursue less conventional approaches, including looking at diet, natural supplements and botanical medicines.

On that topic I invited Amy to enlighten us all. Be well.
Naturopathic medicine caught my attention while I was attending undergraduate college. I was taking pre-med classes and on track to go to conventional medical school. I was having health issues that were progressing, and it seemed like every other week I was at the doctor’s office getting another prescription.
