|Description||Natural (Nature’s) Medicine’s basic premise is that ill health is fundamentally a functional imbalance or disequilibrium within the body. Disease is a plethora of symptoms produced by the body’s attempt to re-establish homeostasis. Traditional Natural (Nature’s) Medicine Practitioners are healthcare professionals who are educated and experienced in the use of safe, gentle, non-invasive, eclectic healing techniques geared at enhancing the body’s innate healing ability which is responsible for re-establishing and maintaining optimum health.
Traditional natural (nature’s) healing approaches can act to facilitate the body’s own natural healing processes. The traditional natural medicine practitioner does not undertake to “diagnose” or “treat diseases” and by traditional definition DOES NOT use surgery, drugs, or any invasive methodology as part of their services.
A traditional Natural (Nature’s) Medicine Practitioner is one who practices (teaches) a preventive healing system in which an eclectic mix of natural modalities and techniques are used, including but not limited to nutritional and dietary counseling, botanical/herbal remedies, natural environmental force, manual techniques, remedial exercises, counseling client on self-care, hydro-therapies in all forms, and the use of mineral and plant extracts. The focus is to bring harmony to the body.
