Naturopathic Immunity

I can't believe it has been so long since my last post.  I am pleasantly surprised at how many people are looking at this blog despite my lack of recent posts - thank-you!

Today's topic: immunity.

As of yet, I have never had a runny nose, sore throat, nor an arm with eczema walk into my office.  There is always a person attached!  Obvious as this sounds, too often patients come to see me after months of being treated as such.  I believe this is partly due to our overburdened social health care system in Canada which doesn't afford Medical Doctors enough time to dig beyond the obvious.  It is also likely due to nearly 100 years of the conventional medical paradigm being applied directly to chronic conditions.  Yes, the conventional medical system is excellent and I thank God for its acute life saving ability.  However, your immunity is one of those systems that often requires more than a "band aid" solution.  If you have ever found yourself on continual prescriptions of antibiotics or corticosteriods, maybe it is time to look beyond the symptom and investigate the root of the problem.

I hear your point, Dr. Mountain. The main objective of this subject is to maintain the immunity of the body to prevent diseases. It is a distinct system of health care that uses the fusion of modern and traditional medical principles.

Naturopathic Medicine is the best way to diagnose the disease. It heals the wound in the most natural way and also represents our tradition.

I agree with this post. The root of natural health and Naturopathic remedies is finding what the source of the ailment is and correcting it there instead of just band-aid the symptoms. Thank you for doing what you do!

I completely agree with you. Taking rounds and rounds of antibiotics is damaging to your health. It is best to make sure we understand the root cause.

I believe in naturopathy treatments when it comes to immunity. After all, naturopathy is all about the healing and curative powers of the body and it is based on the theory that under equilibrium, all the natural elements in the body are in balance. Only when we go against nature do we disturb this equilibrium and fall ill. I learnt all about this at JNI, the best naturopathy centre in India.
