What is a Traditional Naturopath
A naturopath is a teacher of natural means for enhancing health, wellness, and longevity. Naturopathy is not a system of medicine, diagnoses, or treatments such as are held by medical societies, but a lifestyle of practices that build immunity, improve mental health, and enhance body functions.
What Is Naturopathy?
Naturopathy embodies philosophies and principles involving pure water, clean air, wholesome food, proper diet, nutrition, exercise, proper living, appropriate rest, right thinking, absence from toxic substances, effective management of stress, and other concepts that lead to a balanced living.
What Is a Master Herbalist?
An herbalist or botanic physician is one whose therapies are confined to the use of herbs, roots, barks, leaves, flowers, berries, and seeds. An herbalist confines his/her ministrations to the substances that Mother Nature has so bountifully provided, those substances that are organic in chemistry, and those that are endowed with life and are harmonious with the chemistry of man. The practice of an herbalist has come to include all substances in the plant kingdom that are in harmony with, and conducive to, cell growth and rehabilitation.
What Is Kinesiology?
Kinesiology is the science of muscle testing as a biofeedback mechanism for assessing the state of subtle energies in the body. The appropriate herbs or other techniques are administered to balance these energies. Using kinesiology as a diagnostic tool enables our natural healing experts to assess the strength and/or weakness of your bodily systems, such as the endocrine system, liver, kidney, lungs, intestines, and circulatory system. We can detect the presence of excess yeast or parasites and vitamin and mineral levels.
What Are Herbal Extracts?
A liquid extract is made by soaking the whole herb in a liquid that releases and concentrates its active ingredients. All herbs are cold pressed so that no heat is used in the processing, which destroys live enzymes. A tincture is made with a solvent of grain alcohol and distilled water. Alcohol is the best solvent, carrier, and preservative for the active constituents of most plants. An alcohol tincture will retain its potency for up to three years or more, unlike one year for powdered herbs. The active ingredients of liquid extracts are quickly absorbed in our digestive juices and are the most potent form of using herbs medicinally.
