Brisbane has come of age after Expo 1988, it is now one of the most beautiful and vibrant Cities.
Even before EXPO, Brisbane has been at the forefront of supporting Holistic Natural Therapies, and it has and had some great Natural Clinics and Colleges.
Although the term "Traditional Naturopathy" originated in the late 19th Century, this Natural Healing Art and Traditional Medicine Modality can be traced back through Germany into Greece, to Hippocrates himself, and even beyond.
There have always been people who understood that healing will occur naturally in the human body, if it is given what it truly needs, which is:
proper diet, pure water, fresh air, sunlight, exercise, and rest, and a "natural" environment to foster the building of a well balanced immune system.
In today's society with an overwhelming emphasize on extreme hygiene, and being close to being embalmed with anti-bacterial everything, our immune systems have lost the ability for natural development, to the extend, that future treatment may involve introducing "dirt", in form of bacterial or parasite matter to stimulate immune function building.
Your Naturopath is trained and aware in advising patients how to find the way back to balance and therefore to health.
While Naturopaths recognizes that allopathic health care is necessary, they understand that many accepted allopathic treatments may be actually harmful in the long term.
Drugs are not promoting health, most drugs are maintenance treatment, meaning once you have been diagnosed with a condition you may have to take drugs for the rest of your life. Therefore, Naturopath, next to their original aim to promote promote health and prevent diseases, have also taken on the goal of helping to eliminate, if possible, drug side effects and furthermore develop natural treatments to counteract the harmful effects of living within our modern, but as part of that, toxic and often over-hygienic society.
In teaching clients how to live a healthy, holistic balanced lifestyle, a naturopaths follows the principle of : "Do no harm"
Naturopaths do not use harmful, artificial substances such as drugs and pharmaceuticals.
Naturopaths have to undergo extensive training and have to be members of a recognised Natural Medicine Associations.
Naturopaths are often called "Holistic Practitioners", because they believe that a patient has to be seen and treated as a whole being and not just as separate parts which may present certain symptoms. By example, one can not separate the skin, in case of a skin disease, from the rest of the body. The skin is not the cause of the skin disease, and a local treatment application will hardly ever achieve a cure, and probably will only suppress the symptoms deeper into the body.
Holistic simply refers to the concept of seeing the physical - mental and spiritual body as one.
The name Holistic means whole. Most categories within the Natural Therapy field have an underlying philosophy of treating holistically. This is contrary to the medical system which treats symptoms and the individual parts of a whole being in isolation.
