In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Naturopathy makes us aware that the human body is a living mechanism which is self-sustaining on condition that it is maintained in a healthy and natural environment (hygiene of life, food).

Naturopathy does not cure the symptoms of the disease; it puts the body back in conditions conducive to strengthening the self-healing and restorative vital energy. The central pillar of naturopathy is the organism's "self-healing" capacity which can, on its own, restore the balance necessary for its proper physiological and psychological functioning and naturopathy supports this vital force thanks to natural means and ancestral techniques.

Hippocratic Principles

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

The therapy is based on four fundamental principles, which gave birth to the 7 essential rules of naturopathy.

1. To be useful, or at least not to harm, PRIMUM NIL NOCERE, to fight the evil by its opposite, CONTRARIA CONTRARIUS: a phlegmatic, “cold” and “damp” patient will need warming remedies; a bloated blood, refreshing.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

2. Fighting evil with its opposite is at the origin of the word ALLOPATHIC which is used to characterize the great Western medical tradition. Allopathic comes from the Greek word allos, which means other.

Hippocrates is a trainer

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

To these 4 fundamental principles can be added a 5th, which shows that Hippocrates has the quality of a teacher. It is about the way of expressing things. In a few words, the essential is said, in a few words, we are led to think, to want to make links, to understand. Hippocrates uses a process that most wise men use: the aphorism. The aphorism is a very short sentence which is sufficient on its own. The aphorism is a short thought which leads us to keep on thinking.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

Principles established by Hippocrates and which still remain the bases of the Naturotherapeutic action:

  1. "primum non nocere": first to do no harm

The 7 rules in Naturopathy

Naturopathy is governed by seven essential rules:

"Primum non nocere", "Vis medicatrix naturae", "tolle causam", "docere".

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

- Above all do not harm ("Primum non nocere")

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Minimize the risk of side effects and avoid suppressing symptoms. Symptoms of an illness (fever, for example) may be manifestations of a healing process. Therefore, their outright removal can cause more harm than good. Therapeutic interventions must therefore promote the natural healing process and not counter it.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

- Nature is healing ("Vis medicatrix naturae")

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

This is the concept of vitalism. Vital energy enables self-healing. Naturopathic medicine seeks to improve this process. Every living being is animated by a vital force. This life energy is an intelligent force which always tends towards health, against and against all the vagaries of existence, and gives us a capacity for self-healing. One of the most remarkable actions revealed by this self-healing power is healing: wounds heal and bones heal naturally.
The body has the inherent ability to maintain health and restore it when it has lost it. At the heart of the living organism are the life forces to achieve this. The role of the doctor or therapist is to facilitate access to these forces by discovering and removing the obstacles that stand in the way.

 

- Identify and eliminate the cause ("tolle causam")

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Identify the causes of health disorders and treat them with natural methods. This is the concept of causalism: search for the causes (origin) of disorders, while allopathy, according to naturopaths, is content to treat symptoms. Simply suppressing the symptoms (fevers, pains, coughs, pimples, etc.) without understanding the causes is acting against Life and preparing the organism for real lesional or degenerative diseases which gradually destroy it. fire.
Restoring the natural balance can only be done by working on the causes at the origin of this disorder.

- Treat the whole person

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Naturopathy adds the concept of holism (from the Greek "holos", whole): It is a "holistic" medicine, which intends to treat the person as a whole, that is to say his body, his mind, its emotions, its social or spiritual aspect, and even its energy.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

 

- Naturopathy teaches (Docere)

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

The therapist is an educator. The techniques of prevention and education of the person improve their hygiene of life. It will thus be able to develop its vital force, maintain itself in health and develop its power of self-healing. This is the concept of naturism (for English speakers) or hygienism (for French people): the desire to live healthily and to take care of oneself using natural techniques and herbal medicine.

The naturopath is the ally of the self-healing vital force: he stimulates it, goes in its direction, awakens its power, it helps to restore health.
The doctor must guide his patient on the road to recovery and help him maintain his health in a natural way. He must therefore teach him to take care of himself and to take charge of his own healing process, according to the following principles:

- The holistic approach. The therapist explains to the patient that his illness is the result of a complex set of interactions between the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes, and that he should intervene on each of them.

- Food. He teaches him how to eat so that he gets all the nutrients he needs for his health, so as to avoid resorting to synthetic drugs or surgery.

- Prevention. Finally, he teaches him how to act on his environment and his lifestyle in order to maximize his strength and well-being and, ultimately, reduce the risk of disease.

 

- Prevention is the best cure

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Detoxify and purify the organism (Deinde purgare): eliminate toxins. This is the concept of humorism: the old Hippocratic theory of moods is modernized.
The blood, lymph and intra and extracellular fluids are victims of clogging, at the origin of health disorders. Waste (or toxins) that are not eliminated naturally cause disease (toxemia theory). These toxins come from outside (poor diet, pollution, stimulants, chemical drugs, cosmetics, etc.) or from inside (deficiencies, sedentary lifestyle, stress, dysfunctions of the liver, lungs, kidneys, intestines, poor mental attitude or emotional).

 

- Establish health and well-being

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

The disease is often explained by the production of toxins, generated by a poor diet (too much sugar, fat, gluten, not enough vitamins and minerals). Toxins, the cause of disease, are also generated by the modern world: beauty products can poison the skin; pollution and tobacco can poison the lungs; alcohol, coffee, sugar, fats, additives or drugs can poison the liver and intestines, salt, drugs or excess meat can poison the kidneys; heavy metal pollution poisons the whole body.

Les limites de la naturopathie

Attention cependant, dans le cas de pathologies lourdes, la naturopathie ne peut pas être LA solution thérapeutique. Elle peut éventuellement trouver sa place en complément d'approches médicales complémentaires.
